SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] drm/drm_vblank: Change EINVAL by the correct errno
Hi,

I resend this patch for CI via “intel-gfx@lists.freedesktop.org” as
Daniel suggested, and I got a feedback that reported an issue as can be
seen here:

https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/series/51147/

After a careful analysis of what happened, I concluded that the problem
is related to the function “igt_wait_for_vblank_count()” in “igt_kms.c”.
This function has the following assert:

igt_assert(drmWaitVBlank(drm_fd, &wait_vbl) == 0)

This function only checks if everything went well with the
drmWaitVBlank() operation and does not make any other validation. IMHO
the patch is correct, and the problem pointed out by CI is not related
to this change.

Make sense?

Best Regards
