Add a new kind of index, like this?
enum {
        VFIO_PCI_INTX_IRQ_INDEX,
        VFIO_PCI_MSI_IRQ_INDEX,
        VFIO_PCI_MSIX_IRQ_INDEX,
        VFIO_PCI_ERR_IRQ_INDEX,
        VFIO_PCI_REQ_IRQ_INDEX,
+      VFIO_PCI_GFX_FLIP_EVENT_INDEX,
        VFIO_PCI_NUM_IRQS
};
Perhaps this is what we don't want. This VFIO_PCI_GFX_FLIP_EVENT_INDEX is specific to graphics card and it's actually an event which is reported by INTX/MSI/ MSIX IRQ.
Thanks.

Tina
