<vendor_id state='on' value='imgayimgay69'/>

this value in my libvirt xml allows me to use nvidia cards in a vm without the driver getting angery

@ben nvidia, in their infinite wisdom, introduced a "bug" in their 370.xx something driver that detects if it's running in a VM or not and then fails with code 43 in windows.

one of the things it looks for is the computer's vendor ID. if it's equal to a VM's ID, it fails.

if you set the vendor ID string to literally anything else, it works.
