Subject[PATCH] drm/vkms: Avoid extra discount in the timestamp value
After the commit def35e7c5926 ("drm/vkms: Bugfix extra vblank frame")
some of the crc tests (IGT) start to fail in the vkms with the following

[drm:drm_crtc_add_crc_entry [drm]] *ERROR* Overflow of CRC buffer,
userspace reads too slow.
[drm] failed to queue vkms_crc_work_handle

The commit def35e7c5926 ("drm/vkms: Bugfix extra vblank frame") added an
operation for decrement the timestamp value returned by
`get_vblank_timestamp()` which solved the problems related to kms_flip
tests. However, each call to `get_vblank_timestamp()` reduces the
timestamp even when it is not required. Such decrement generates a
negative number in the following calculation within

u64 diff_ns = ktime_to_ns(ktime_sub(t_vblank, vblank->time));

Next, the DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST_ULL macro is invoked using the diff_ns
value, which generates an undefined result. Therefore, the returned
frame is incorrect, which assign a huge number to the variable
frame_end. In this case, causing the loop (`vkms_crc_work_handle()`)
below to take a long time:

frame_end = drm_crtc_accurate_vblank_count(crtc);
while (frame_start <= frame_end)
drm_crtc_add_crc_entry(crtc, true, frame_start++, &crc32);

This commit fixes this issue by adding a check that validates whether
the current vblank timestamp is still the same, thus avoiding excessive
timestamp decrement of the timestamp value.
