After disckussion with okurz, I closed PR and will prepare new better solution which contains changes to os-autoinst and test code.

#6 Updated by pcervinka almost 2 years ago

Returned form sicknes last week, resuming work. Will create two PRs, on for os-autoinst to selectively skip console reset for particular console based on parameter during add_console for spvm. There will have to be parallel change for reconnect mgt console to don't start new mkvterm, but reuse existing console.
