Polling for window cast out is listed in the spec, but turns out that
it is not strictly necessary and slows down window close. Making it a
stub for now.

+ *
+ *	- we re-initialize the window context when it is reassigned.
+ *
+ *	We do the former in vas_win_close() and latter in vas_win_open().
+ *	So, ignoring the cast-out for now. We can add it as needed. If
+ *	casting out becomes necessary we should consider offloading the
+ *	job to a worker thread, so the window close can proceed quickly.
