I'd be happier if the framebuffer stuff was in the device section of
the sexp, because it is a device, and there's no reason in principle
why a domain couldn't have more than one of them.

This is a good reason, but I think that the display configuration was
put in image in the HVM sexp for reasons of expediency rather than
correctness. It'd be good not to copy that if we don't have to.
Even better would be to move the HVM configuration information to the
right place, but that's probably a job for another time.

How much of a pain is this going to be?
