vda.h may be exposed unconditionally, but its associated object vda.o
isn't. Since it depends on vda to be assembled, the vda stub itself
doesn't seem to be present ever. So we're basically exposing a header for
functions we can never link against.

So should I somehow fix VDA while dropping it by providing a stub that was
never present?
