It should. The GOP interface usually gets invoked with special BLT
callbacks that copy gfx data from the payload to the frame buffer. Of
course we would need to make sure we don't set the magical "this is
where the frame buffer is, please use it" bit, as otherwise Linux would
try to access it as efifb.

Exactly, so a native virtio-gpu driver would be the best option for us
here. Once Linux takes over, it can just switch to its own virtio-gpu
