For historical reason, the function drm_wait_vblank_ioctl always return
-EINVAL if something gets wrong. This scenario limits the flexibility
for the userspace make detailed verification of the problem and take
some action. In particular, the validation of “if (!dev->irq_enabled)”
in the drm_wait_vblank_ioctl is responsible for checking if the driver
support vblank or not. If the driver does not support VBlank, the
function drm_wait_vblank_ioctl returns EINVAL which does not represent
the real issue; this patch changes this behavior by return EOPNOTSUPP.
Additionally, some operations are unsupported by this function, and
returns EINVAL; this patch also changes the return value to EOPNOTSUPP
in this case. Lastly, the function drm_wait_vblank_ioctl is invoked by
libdrm, which is used by many compositors; because of this, it is
important to check if this change breaks any compositor. In this sense,
the following projects were examined:

* Drm-hwcomposer
* Kwin
* Sway
* Wlroots
* Wayland-core
* Weston
* Xorg (67 different drivers)

For each repository the verification happened in three steps:

* Update the main branch
* Look for any occurrence "drmWaitVBlank" with the command:
  git grep -n "drmWaitVBlank"
* Look in the git history of the project with the command:
  git log -SdrmWaitVBlank

Finally, none of the above projects validate the use of EINVAL which
make safe, at least for these projects, to change the return values.

Change since V2:
 Daniel Vetter and Chris Wilson
 - Replace ENOTTY by EOPNOTSUPP
 - Return EINVAL if the parameters are wrong

Update:
  Now IGT has a way to validate if a driver has vblank support or not.

Not sure we want EINVAL here, that's kinda a "parameters are wrong"
version too. With that changed:
