FWIW, this seems like a bad idea, since with multiple active CRTCs it
would make it essentially random at which intervals the ioctl returns,
and which CRTCs are in vertical blank when it does. So it would be
useless for both timing and tearing prevention purposes, i.e. more or
less completely useless.
