Description

Hello,

Please include the virtio_console.ko kernel module, it's needed by the qemu-guest-agent (open-vm-tools of the KVM world).
It's a very useful software that allows one to interact with the OS as well as get information (such as network info).
Check attached screenshots to see how this augments the experience under Proxmox virtualisation for example.

Merely copying over and loading the kernel module from FreeBSD enabled the qemu-ga1 application to function correctly.

Thank you!
Lucian

+1. I support this feature request. I'm running pfSense in KVM/Qemu and also would like use the qemu-guest-agent functionality.
