If this is a GFX/DISPLAY IRQ, why are we talking about a "vGPU" in the
description?  It's not specific to a vGPU implementation, right?  Is
this related to a physical display or a virtual display?  If it's
related to the GFX PLANE ioctls, it should state that.  It's not well
specified what this interrupt signals.  Is it vblank?  Is it pageflip?
Is it both?  Neither?  Something else?

Again, what display?  Does this reference a GFX plane?  The event_val
data is not well specified, examples might be necessary.  They seem to
be used as a flag bit, so should we simply define a bit index for the
flag rather than a u64 value?  Where are the actual events per plane
defined?

I'm not sure this patch shouldn't be rolled back into 1, I couldn't
find the previous discussion that triggered it to be separate.  Perhaps
simply for sharing with the work Eric is doing?  If so, that's fine,
but maybe make note of it in the cover letter.  Thanks,

Alex
