Bug Description

Currently, when using mir we have no way to continue working while the autopilot tests are running because they will use the input devices of the current display user session. Also, it’s not possible to run two suites in parallel because the input calls will conflict.

We need a virtual framebuffer that implements the display server protocol in memory, just like xvfb does it for x11.

See also bug 1118903. In both cases these are new display drivers we need to write.
