It's actual emulation of the Cirrus chip and thus uses the Cirrus pci
id.  But as of the alpha, the cirrus driver hadn't been fixed up for the
libpciaccess changes in X and so we needed to fallback to vesa.  Should
be back to using cirrus for now.

Although longer term, it's probably worth spending the time to fix up
the VMWare SVGA emulation from qemu to work with kvm... just not enough
round tuits
