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
