The following two patches make it possible to tunnel character devices
over VNC, using a new VNC extension. This is motivated by the existing
QEMU support for tunnelling audio streams over VNC, and the code follows
a very similar design.  The key requirement here is that it should not
be neccessary to specifically configure each character device to make
it available via VNC. The admin should be able to configure the char
devices with all current available backends (file, pty, null, tcp, udp,
unix, etc), and regardless of this config be able to snoop on data from
any active VNC client on demand.

Shouldn't it just be the character devices put on vc's?

Does snooping imply read-only?  That would be pretty unfortunate.
