Where did you figure that out? I'm interested in the logical
progression you have made to arrive at this answer...
Part of the plan for kernel modesetting is to enable better single GPU
multi-seat as well as integrated with the VGA arbiter to enable
better multi-card multi-seat..
These are two mostly different problem spaces, even though to the
uneducated it might look like solving the same problem.
