Unprivileged guests get no access to the AGPGART hardware, so they
will never be able to run a native X server (you need to use VNC or
some other means to forward screen data to real X in domain 0).

Privileged guests *ought* to be able to run X with AGPGART but
currently there are bugs which cause it to fail. That's what we are
looking into.
