* Refine some codes based on Campbell's feedback so thanks for Campbell's
  kind guideline to patch #2
* Update the manpages in patch #2


* Refine patch #2's head description 
* Improve codes quality inside patch #1 based on Wei's comments
* Refill the summary inside patch #0 based on Konrad and Wei's suggestion

When we're working to support IGD GFX passthrough with qemu
upstream, instead of "-gfx_passthru" we'd like to make that
a machine option, "-machine xxx,igd-passthru=on".


This need to bring a change on tool side.

After a discussion with Campbell, we'd like to construct a table to record
all IGD devices we can support. If we hit that table, we should pass that
option. And so we also introduce a new field of type, 'gfx_passthru_kind',
to cooperate with 'gfx_passthru' to cover all scenarios like this,

    gfx_passthru = 0    => sets build_info.u.gfx_passthru to false
    gfx_passthru = 1    => sets build_info.u.gfx_passthru to true and
                           build_info.u.gfx_passthru_kind to DEFAULT
    gfx_passthru = "igd"    => sets build_info.u.gfx_passthru to false
                               and build_info.u.gfx_passthru_kind to IGD

And note actually that option "-gfx_passthru" is just introduced to
work for qemu-xen-traditional so we should get this away from
libxl__build_device_model_args_new() in the case of qemu upstream.

      libxl: introduce gfx_passthru_kind
