Hi,

Initial testing on physical machines the backspace sending to ConOut correctly just back spaced with no clearing of characters. Under VirtualBox (OVMF) it will clear characters which is not expected. The user would need to send "\b \b" if they want to clear a character. Perhaps the spec should be clarified that backspace should just backspace (like CR just does a CR and LF just does a LF).

TIA!!
