This just requires driver work; the extension supports async monitor
detection already. The intel driver has async monitor detection,
although it's based on polling at present, even on hardware which
supports an interrupt-driven scheme. I'll be fixing that up to use
interrupts and we should get nice auto-detection on at least Intel
hardware which supports it. Hooking up other drivers to also support
this should be fairly straightforward.
