That's how I do it:

    RAW=[TYPE="kvm",DATA="<devices><video><model type=\"vga\" heads=\"1\"></model></video></devices>"]

It could be interesting to be able to select it in the template:

1. provide a default in /etc/one/vmm_exec/vmm_exec_kvm.conf (cirrus for example)
2. if graphics is “SPICE”, set the card to “qxl” in the template
2. user can override the card type for this template

If you define the RAW DATA in /etc/one/vmm_exec/vmm_exec_kvm.conf, then
you can not override it in the template because RAW are concatenated.
