1) Patch QEMU to disable PCI snooping and prevent it showing to
the guest the CPU make/model is QEMU.

This will prevent the driver from detecting it is running in a
VM and it will thus agree to initialize the GPU. Yes, Nvidia
driver looks for signs of being in a VM and if it finds them,
it will refuse to initialize GPUs other than the expensive
Quadros and Teslas (cheap Quadros and GeForces won't work).

Could you please clarify what you meant by "patch QEMU"? I'm asking in hope that you are aware of some patch that does that and works with XEN :)
