I think you have it backwards.

In the case here gfx_passthru=1 has been set by the user, but
gfx_passthru_kind=DEFAULT. So libxl has tried to autodetect but it has

So if the user wants to make progress they should set gfx_passthru_kind
to whatever type of passthrough they were trying to do.

Alternatively I suppose you could recommend removing gfx_passthru=1 (or
changing to=0), but given they've set =1 that doesn't seem to be the
most productive suggestion.
