Well I gave it a go, on a test Win 8.1 32 bit VM I have. Much to my
surprise it installed with no problems. The Driver shows up in device
manager as "QXL KMDOD"

It gave me a large range of resolutions to choose from, up to 2560x1600

Performance felt very slow.

I managed to manually install the RHEV Service (vdservice), had to manually
set the qxl display id in the register for it to work. Once done, the mouse
integration worked, though it was laggy.
 Display resizing worked to, but only in discrete steps - no pixel perfect

Over all it worked, but much better off using remote desktop.
