Clock type change is not the only time we queue SYN_DROP, the other time
is when we fail to handle EVIOCG[type] (during which we remove some
events from the queue). Queue may be empty when these ioctls are issued.

We try to pass full packets to clients, but there is no guarantee. We
only estimate number of events in device's packet, not guarantee that it
is correct size.

Why does this matter?

Thanks.
