This sounds ok. Considering that the DRM driver is a virtual driver,
attaching it to a virtual device sounds ok -- ish.

We're about to post patches for both host1x driver and libdrm. This is
the last big rock unturned, so let me take a stab at this first. I'd

to either get it done for that or leave it to the TODO list.
