    Default QXL/SPICE KMS Driver May Finally Be Developed

    Phoronix: QXL/SPICE KMS Driver May Finally Be Developed

    Red Hat may finally get to developing a KMS/DRM driver for QXL/SPICE to be used in conjunction with QXL for virtualization. This is a stepping-stone to eventually supporting SPICE 3D for allowing Red Hat virtual machines to tap hardware graphics acceleration support...

    Heh, this should be a walk in the park for all the driver devs that have to design a driver based on some documentation (radeon) or no documentation at all (nouveau)!

    At least now they know how things should look like 'on the other side'

    Hopefully the work will also include passing command streams (E.g. OpenGL) to the host.
    It should improve desktop performance when running both Windows clients and Linux clients (Though I doubt that it'll come near to bare-metal performance).
