Ok, I can look at finding a spot for it in pciinit.  Note though that
there's nothing QEMU specific about this, if other platforms are already
enabling a route to a VGA device, there's no change.  If something
sneaks through without a VGA device enabled, this should generically
enable the first device.  Thanks,
