If neither width nor height changes, nothing has to be done.

This patch improves SDL for any host (for example with remote X displays),
but the main reason why I wrote it was another problem:

On w32 / w64 hosts, qemu-system-arm has a deadlock when it calls
sdl_resize_displaysurface during Linux boot. One thread waits for
a critical region, another thread waits inside SDL_SetVideoMode.

The patch avoids this problem. Paolo, maybe you have an idea what
could cause the deadlock. Debugging on wxx is terrible - up to now,
I did not succeed in analysing the lock situation with gdb.
