Hi C├ędric,

Excellent, thanks for testing!

obmc-console will be the final solution; however, it doesn't mean we
need to always use ssh-based access to the console.

It allows multiple "handlers" for the UART data. At present, we have
two handlers: one that copies to/from stdio (which we then pipe over
ssh), and one that logs the host UART data to a file.

For a websocket, we'd just need a new handler to implement that.

We also have a TODO for a handler to implement redirection back to a
local UART:

Cheers,


Jeremy
