Hi Ville,

Yes Ville, you’re right. We have to update it only when the function
vkms_vblank_simulate() is invoked (timer move forward), and FWIU we do
it when we call drm_crtc_handle_vblank(). However, the current
implementation of vkms, has a call to drm_crtc_accurate_vblank_count()
inside the vkms_vblank_simulate() which is a problem because it also
update the vblank value. FWIU, this patch fixes this issue by taking the
count value in the data struct instead of call
drm_crtc_accurate_vblank_count() which will avoid the extra update.

Thanks,
Best Regards
