Based on the Python IVI readme (http://alexforencich.com/wiki/en/python-ivi/readme), 
it looks like this library is able to use the actual PySerial library
but doesn't provide it.  You may need to install that using pip if it's
not available in EPEL.  The ivi RPM may not provide pyserial because it's
not a required library.

You may also just want to search EPEL for serial.py, which is the
ultimate name of the PySerial library on disk.
