Support serial over usb in the validation lab

Registered by Paul Larson on 2011-06-30

Headline: Boards that can only do serial console over usb are now supported in the validation lab

As a Linaro engineer, I would like to have boards in the lab only support serial over usb
Chaining hubs should be ok, since we have low bandwidth needs
udev rules would need to be written to statically associate boards with usb ids
cable length could be a concern
ash said he has cheated and got 10 meters out of one before
A 49 port usb hub is made by a company in cabridge, ~ 400 UK
ACTION; Dave to get small hub in to test the implementation issues
