This function is useful for gen2 intel devices which have no frame
counter, but need a way to determine the current vblank count without
racing with the vblank interrupt handler.

intel_pipe_update_start checks if no vblank interrupt will occur
during vblank evasion, but cannot check whether the vblank handler has
run to completion. This function uses the timestamps to determine
when the last vblank has happened, and interpolates from there.

Changes since v1:
- Take vblank_time_lock and don't use drm_vblank_count_and_time.
Changes since v2:
- Don't return time of last vblank.
Changes since v3:
- Change pipe to unsigned int. (Ville)
- Remove unused documentation for tv_ret. (kbuild)
Changes since v4:
- Add warning to docs when the function is useful.
- Add a WARN_ON when get_vblank_timestamp is unavailable.
- Use drm_vblank_count.

Unfortunately WARN_ON(!dev->disable_vblank_immediate) doesn't work on gen2,
which is the reason this function is created. So I used
WARN_ON(!get_vblank_timestamp) instead.

That's a weaker warning. I'd like to have the WARN_ON and the doc text 
to be more frightening/restrictive to discourage abuse.

But can't you simply remove that !IS_GEN2 check now and always set 
dev->disable_vblank_immediate = true? The reason for that exception was 
that GEN2 doesn't have a hw vblank counter. But it has scanout pos based 
vblank timestamping, which i'd assume is well behaved. With the new 
scanout based vblank counter emulation in drm_update_vblank_count() 
since around Linux 4.4 you therefore essentially have a proper emulated 
vblank counter, so this should be safe. Ville will probably know. 
Otherwise you couldn't trust drm_accurate_vblank_count() here, because 
it depends on the same logic, no?

Anyway, although i would have liked the stricter check and warning docs, 
the v4 patch is ok with me:
