SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] vfio: add edid api for display (vgpu) devices.
  Hi,

Hmm, using a virtual register space makes things more complicated for no
good reason. This is a configuration interface for qemu, not something
we expose to the guest. So, I'm not a fan ...

New revision of the vfio.h patch attached below, how does that look
like? If it is ok I'll go continue with that next week (more verbose
docs, update qemu code and test, ...)

cheers,
Gerd
