I suspect it is because vblank_disable_and_save calls
drm_update_vblank_count() unconditionally, even if vblank irqs are
already off.

So on a manual display disable -> reenable you get something like

At disable:

Call to dpms-off --> atombios_crtc_dpms(DPMS_OFF) --> drm_vblank_off ->
vblank_disable_and_save -> irqs off, drm_update_vblank_count() computes
final count.

Then the crtc is shut down and its hw counter resets to zero.

At reenable:

Modesetting -> drm_crtc_helper_set_mode -> crtc_funcs->prepare(crtc) ->
atombios_crtc_prepare() -> atombios_crtc_dpms(DPMS_OFF) ->
drm_vblank_off -> vblank_disable_and_save -> A pointless
drm_update_vblank_count() while the hw counter is already reset to zero
--> Unwanted counter jump.

The problem doesn't happen on a pure modeset to a different video
resolution/refresh rate, as then we only have one call into

I think the fix is to fix vblank_disable_and_save() to only call
drm_update_vblank_count() if vblank irqs get actually disabled, not on
no-op calls. I will try that now.

Otherwise kms drivers would have to be careful to never call
drm_vblank_off multiple times before calling drm_vblank_on, but the help
text to drm_vblank_on() claims that unbalanced calls to these functions
are perfectly fine.
