Abstract: The pvfb video driver and the keyboard/point driver are
useful for gui interaction with a domU console, including
gui.

Deliverables:

A framebuffer device and console, which can be used to
interact with the domU. The qemu process on the dom0 can
then use this buffer to display to the regular X server
using the SDL, as it does with HVM domUs. This is very useful
for gui frontends to xen.

Implementation:

A simple framebuffer driver is implemented, along the lines of:
