| | The qemu has an out-of-bands bug in uart_write() function.

| 
|   Not sure if this should need a CVE, awaiting upstream confirmation on the 
| same.

  Received confirmation from Qemu upstream, it could not consider this issue 
to be security relevant[*], to require CVE assignment.

Thank you.
