Subject: [PATCH 08/13] virtio-console: Enable port throttling when chardev is
 slow to consume data

When a chardev indicates it can't accept more data, we tell the
virtio-serial code to stop sending us any more data till we tell
otherwise.  This helps in guests continuing to run normally while the vq
keeps getting full and eventually the guest stops queueing more data.
As soon as the chardev indicates it can accept more data, start pushing!
