  the question about QXL means that there's a bit of confusion about
the technology used.

Nvidia vGPU allows you to give a part of the card to the guest that
will see this "part" as a graphic card.
QXL is a virtual implementation of a different graphic card (yes, it
can be confusing that the graphic APIs of SPICE are prefixed
So, nothing forbids that on the guest you can have 2 graphic cards
(one Nvidia vGPU and another QXL) and this is usually useful during
the setup of pass-through cards but working on QXL card won't improve
Nvidia vGPU support.
The streaming agent was designed for such cases, to allow the SPICE
server to "see" the guest GPU. This as the GPU control is mainly (if
not completely) delegated to the guest and Qemu/SPICE has not much
control on it (like getting frames or even less encode them).
