Yes, there are kernel changes necessary, QEMU doesn't have any idea
where the device stores the framebuffer, when it's accessible, when it
changes, etc.  There's a vfio interface being designed to support
passing dma-bufs to userspace for this purpose for Intel and vfio
regions with framebuffer data for NVIDIA.

Any remote desktop software that can be used on bare metal can be used
in the VM, ex. VNC server, HP RGS, NICE DCV, even Steam streaming.
QEMU is not the only way to get to a "desktop" for the GPU.  Thanks,
