Oh, okay. I already have some unreleased guest code that makes use of this, so 
questions would be: how can EDID be enabled from the command line for in-built 
devices, and how do I detect whether EDID support is present from the guest?
Otherwise a guest driver that assumes it is always present and tries to read 
that area of memory will crash.
