You are right. The reason I didn't change it is that the whole
WSDISPLAYIO_GTYPE is half-done and needs a new interface imho.
To be more useful, some more information should be provided
like a more specific device identification (VID/DID in the PCI case)
and physical attachment information (PCI bus/dev/fcn or even
mappable memory ranges).
Some input from X experts is highly appreciated.
