+          qemu: Support boot display for GPU mediated devices
+        </summary>
+        <description>
+          Until now, GPU mediated devices generally did not show any output
+          until the guest OS had initialized the vGPU. By specifying the
+          <code>ramfb</code> attribute, QEMU can be configured to use ramfb as
+          a boot display for the device: this allows for display of firmware
+          messages, boot loader menu, and other output before the guest OS has
+          initialized the vGPU.
