I added this so that the new ioctl would be compatible with the old
ioctl; do you think that's unnecessary?

I just wrote a note to Daniel about this; I think it is useful in that
applications could specify that they actually want the event delivered
at first pixel out in accordance with the Vulkan spec, even if we can't
do that (yet). I definitely agree that requiring the bit be set is
ridiculous and should be removed.
1) Remove the code which checks whether the flag is set.
Make Vulkan set the flag signaling what it wants.
Plan on doing the actual driver work if we find that it's necessary.
2) Remove the flag entirely.
