Re comment #44:

There has been a ring buffer char device named ringbuf available upstream in QEMU as Anthony suggested in comment #23 like following:

qemu -chardev ringbuf,size=640k,id=foo -serial chardev:foo

And the QMP commands have already been exposed by QEMU like:

Actually it was just the implementation of this request:
