What are the semantics of the ioctl? A simple use case would help
specify the interface here.
In particular, I can't tell whether the return value (timeout_ns) is
meant to be the time elapsed or the time remaining. What value is
returned in the timeout if we are interrupted before the wait completes?
end = gettimeofday() + timeout;
ret = i915_gem_wait(handle, 0, &timeout);
} while (ret == -1 && errno == EINTR);
assert(gettimeofday() <= end);
wait forever, or until the original timeout expires?
