gcc warns about the timestamp in drm_wait_vblank being possibly
used without an initialization:

drivers/gpu/drm/drm_irq.c: In function 'drm_wait_vblank':
drivers/gpu/drm/drm_irq.c:1755:28: warning: 'now.tv_usec' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
   vblwait->reply.tval_usec = now.tv_usec;
drivers/gpu/drm/drm_irq.c:1754:27: warning: 'now.tv_sec' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
   vblwait->reply.tval_sec = now.tv_sec;

This can happen if drm_vblank_count_and_time() returns 0 in its
error path. To sanitize the error case, I'm changing that function
to return a zero timestamp when it fails.

I'm going through the maybe-unused warnings in randconfig builds, this one is
apparently not a false positive, although it only happens if something
else has already gone wrong.

Originally sent out on Jan 13, but I received no reply, so resending now.

The '0' is redundant. Anyway, this is:
