Just to be clear:
 ram_size determines the size of the first bar of the qxl device, until now unsettable via libvirt.
  This bar is used for: surface 0 (and VGA emulation), rendering commands, monitors config, ram header.
 vram_size determines the size of the second bar of the qxl device. settable via the vram attribute.
  This bar is used for: surface > 0 allocations (aka off screen surfaces).
