    Phoronix: QXL/SPICE KMS Driver May Finally Be Developed

        Hopefully the work will also include passing command streams (E.g. OpenGL) to the host.
        It should improve desktop performance when running both Windows clients and Linux clients (Though I doubt that it'll come near to bare-metal performance).
