Ok, I'm curious what makes it more complicated though and why it
matters that it's for QEMU vs exposed to the guest. From the user
perspective, it's just a few pwrites rather than an ioctl. If we use
the ioctl, I think we still need to improve the protocol, it's
confusing that the user can specify both an EDID and a link state.
Does the user need to toggle the link state when setting an EDID or
does that happen automatically? How are link state vs EDID specified?
Simply link_state=0 and edid_size=0 is reserved as not provided?

Yes, modulo the ioctl protocol questions above. Thanks,

Alex
