[Android] [Vulkan] 'GetGpuTimerFrequency' and 'gpuFrameTime' return 0 when building on some devices with Mali GPU



How to reproduce:
1. Open the attached user's project ''
2. Build and Run the application on an Android device
3. When the app loads on the device, observe 'GPUTimerFrequency' and 'GPUFrameTime' values

Expected results: 'GPUTimerFrequency' and 'GPUFrameTime' values are higher than 0
Actual results: 'GPUTimerFrequency' and 'GPUFrameTime' values are equal to 0

Reproducible with: 2019.4.30f1, 2020.3.19f1, 2021.1.22f1, 2021.2.0b13, 2022.1.0a11

Reproducible with these devices:
N/A, Huawei - (NOH-NX9), Android 10, CPU: NOT FOUND, GPU: Mali-G78
VLNQA00231 - HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro (LYA-L29), OS: 9.0.0, CPU: HiSilicon Kirin 980, GPU: Mali-G76

Not reproducible with these devices:

VLNQA00316, Samsung Galaxy Note10 (SM-N970F), Android 9, CPU: Exynos 9 Series 9825, GPU: Mali-G76
VLNQA00225, Qualcomm null (SDM845 for arm64), Android 8.1.0, CPU: Snapdragon 845 SDM845, GPU: Adreno (TM) 630
VLNQA00022, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Redmi Note 3), Android 6.0.1, CPU: Snapdragon 617 MSM8952, GPU: Adreno (TM) 510 (Pink texture when the application starts)
VLNQA00109 - Xiaomi Mi Note Pro (MI NOTE Pro), OS: 7.0.0, CPU: Snapdragon 810 MSM8994, GPU: Adreno 430 (Pink texture when the application starts)
VLNQA00034 - Google Nexus 4 (mako), OS: 5.1.1, CPU: Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, GPU: Adreno 320 (Pink texture when the application starts)

- 'FrameTimingManager.GetGpuTimerFrequency' returns value of 100000000 when building with OpenGLES3 or OpenGLES2 Graphics API

  1. Resolution Note (2022.1.X):

    The affected devices don't support the Vulkan features needed to implement this (timestampComputeAndGraphics).
