Public bug reported:

Currently uvtool doesn't specify a video device, leaving it to the
underlying libraries (libvirt?) to pick one. That default is currently

In disco, cirrus is no longer shipped as a driver in xorg, and a kernel
driver is expected. That kernel driver, however, is not shupped by
default in VM images: it's in the linux-modules-extra-<version> package.

We should change uvtool to pick qxl as a default video device, just like
other higher-level tools do (virt-manager is one).
