No.  It is not backed at all yet.  Workflow would be like this:

  (1) VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_RESOURCE_CREATE_V2
  (2) VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_MEMORY_CREATE (see patch 2)
  (3) VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_RESOURCE_MEMORY_ATTACH (see patch 2)

You could also create a larger pool with VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_MEMORY_CREATE,
then go attach multiple resources to it.

> If so, do we want the option for the guest allocate?

Allocation options are handled by VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_MEMORY_CREATE
(initially guest allocated only, i.e. what virtio-gpu supports today,
the plan is to add other allocation types later on).

That is in VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_RESOURCE_MEMORY_ATTACH ...

cheers,
