> how to proceed? It would be nice to solve this one before announcing RC3

As written in the README:

This test is here to verify the test tools integration with your board and test setup.

It verify the assumptions required for testing on the board behaviour through make term.

(Almost) All tests are using pyterm and if we change pyterm for socat then it means that we don't test the same terminal tools that is used by those tests. I don't like the fix proposed by this PR.
You are running python 3.9 on Arch, which is different from the version available in Ubuntu 20.10 (3.8). So it might be a problem in pyterm with your Python version. If it's very important for you, better fix the real problem than providing a quick workaround fix (that might live longer than you think).
