I was looking for the Perl module mentioned in the book,
UML::MConsole. Darn hard to find. I finally found one, with numbered
lines, in a Google cache.
Now that I see the source, I found that there's not much to it,
really. It's easy to incorporate that functionality.
I guess the mconsole driver would have to be modified in order to
accept messages from the host, other than the predefined messages (eg.
reset, stop, go, etc...). And in the end it'd be easier to simply ssh
to the UMLs instead of having a fancier way of sending messages to it
in which case a daemon inside the UMLS would pickup the msgs received
by the mconsole driver and do stuff. By doign a ssh instead there's no
daemon running so no obvious hint that there's a listener to events
coming from outside of the system.
Yeah, I guess it's not much worth to modify the mconsole driver to
receive arbitrary msgs from the host (with some form of security) and
relay them to a daemon running inside the UML.

I've searched the internet for the UML test suite but certainly that
was not my lucky day as I found no UML test suite around - only the
tools package and the kernel itself (which I've looked at as perhaps
there was some test suite from kernel.org).
