Add COM3 and COM4 to bhyve guests

Authored by otis on Jan 17 2021, 11:57 AM.



While working on different project with bhyve (in particular, on SmartOS-based product), we ran into a situation where we needed all 4 COM ports inside a bhyve guest.

This patch adds them, it has already been tested in SmartOS.

Update the diff to be against FreeBSD. Previously it was against illumos.

Looks good to my eye, but I'd feel better with a nod from one of the main bhyve developers
