Mostly reduce data copying.

Inside the guest?  Import is not working yet, that needs another update
(blob resources) due to current virtio-gpu resources requiring a format
at creation time and dmabufs not having one.

See https://www.kraxel.org/blog/2019/11/virtio-gpu-status-and-plans/ for
some background.

Exporting virtio-gpu resources works in the drm-misc-next branch, should
land in mainline this merge window (i.e. 5.5-rc1).

cheers,
