vulkan/wsi/x11: lower resize events to VK_SUBOPTIMAL_KHR

Currently, a resized window results in an VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DATE_KHR. But,
this seems to go against the spec, which suggests returning
VK_SUBOPTIMAL_KHR if the surface extent no longer matches the window
extent. (It does not *require* the WSI actually scale the contents, only
encourages doing so "if possible")

More to the point, VK_SUBOPTIMAL_KHR is the correct status to return if
the client *can* continue presenting to this swapchain, even if the
result will look wrong / "suboptimal". It's the client's decision on
when exactly to recreate the swapchain in this case, and the client may
very well end up wanting to continue presenting for a frame or two, to
prevent flooding the driver with swapchain recreations (which can result
in the window appearing visually "frozen" while resizing).

This change makes live resizing *significantly* smoother in e.g. mpv.
