    I'd rather not provide the means and defer this capability to a user
    space implementation where we can achieve true multi-user,
    multi-adapter and multi-head support. The more features we add to the
    VT layer today, the harder it will be to replace it in the future.

    I'd like to keep the sysfs attributes as simple as possible because if
    they get too complex and flexible no one is going to know how to set
    them. But you're writing the code and you'll do what you think is
    best.
