VLC still needs to track the correct display size even in fullscreen mode.
Otherwise we will get some small video in the top left. Not to mention the
corner case that the output resolution changes while playing.
So this seems very wrong.

I am not sure if this is correct or not. But flagging a core patch for all
platforms as a Wayland thing is misleading.

This patch disables the scaler. No way.
