Having two holes between _DRM_VBLANK_FLAGS_MASK,
_DRM_VBLANK_HIGH_CRTC_MASK and _DRM_VBLANK_TYPES_MASK can unnecessarily
complicate future extensions.

Is there really a problem with assuming that if the 32-bit value went
backwards, the upper 32 bits have incremented by 1? 1 << 32 refreshes is
about 2 years, so I can't really see any ambiguity there. For hardware
that doesn't have 64 bit frame counters (does any have that yet?),
something like that needs to be done at some level anyway.

Anyway, that's another discussion...
