Actually we need confirmation that the SerialPlugin works properly
on Windows *and* on unix. Specifically, we need someone to confirm
that they can communicate with some real USB serial gadget using the
named primitives on Linux, and we need someone to confirm that the
existing serial primitive support is not broken on Windows (and
hopefully that accessing 'COM1' also works).

Severin Lemaignan has previously verified that the changes (from
Mantis 7266) worked for him on Linux, but the platform sources have
changed since then so we need to recheck it.
