Just waded through the ast patches.

It is not that simple for qxl.  You have to send a command to the
virtualization host and take care of the host accessing that memory
when processing the command, so you can't reuse the memory until the
host signals it is fine to do so.

But, yes, it should be possible to handle cursor_bo creation in
prepare_fb without too much effort.

take care,
