The pacing is done here:

There is still a deadline that forces a wait when the frame is early. If 
it's not early (ie late) then there's no pacing and we continue pushing 
as fast as we can.

There is a drop mechanism if we try to display a late frame and the next 
one is ready to be used and will likely be late as well:
