A bit more strict, it's up to drivers when exactly the vblank interrupt
fires. Some fire at vblank start, some at the end, some somewhen around
that. The only rule is that the vblank must not fire before the point of
no return for another page_flip call, i.e. after the vblank event goes
out, the next page_flip (or atomic ioctl) must go to the next vblank.

So yeah both positive and negative deltas make perfect sense.
