With a single command, can blob_id be 0 when virgl=on?  Does the host
have enough info to know where to allocate from?

It seems we want HOSTSYS such that we can create dumb bos that are not
shadowed.  How about favoring GUEST for that use case instead?  Some
VMMs cannot support mapping a HOSTSYS into the guest.  The downside
would be that VMMs only see a dumb bo as an array of
virtio_gpu_mem_entry.  VMMs that need a linear mapping would need
something like udmabuf.
