Of course a console is needed. But I was questioning the need for something
much
more elaborate than a putchar/getchar interface. I understand its needed to
port
the hypervisor but I undersatnd it would be needed for very early parts of the
hypervisor where it does not even have the ability to master a uart on its
own.
Yeah, I think you are right that it is not a must-have feature but a
nice-to-have feature.
