[Help Welcome] KVM Development - staying the course

I think we can go ahead and rip out the qxl dependency in whonix and KS as it is now obsolete and we no longer use the graphics device in question. @Patrick

Discussing this in 2 forums at the same time makes it a bit weird to keep everything updated. Best to keep discussions in the original, specialized forum thread only and only post a link here for reference.
