Userpace serial port

I have a serial port accesible via Ehtercat.

Ethercat is a fancy way of accessing i/o devices via ethernet. You can
read/write registers with close to real-time restrictions.

Nowadays there is a kernel land implementation of ethercat master, but
it is not merged (and it is definately not an easy job). And a
software implementation

My hope is that there is something like uinput, but for serial
devices,i.e. I make a userland program that looks like a normal serial
device to the other applications.

Does this exist?
