Multiple.

Each channel has a different purpose.  There it is expected that a 
different userspace application would be using it.

Hemant implemented the loopback channel, which is a simple channel that 
just sends you back anything you send it.  Typically this is consumed by 
a test application.

Diag is a typical channel to be consumed by userspace.  This is consumed 
by various applications that talk to the remote device for diagnostic 
information (logs and such).

Sahara is another common channel that is usually used for the multistage 
firmware loading process.
