vertical, upside down is the native panel orientation.

The N950 vendor kernel contains some code adding DSI
rotation support with half-frame update mechnism to
avoid tearing. It's quite complex and as far as I
understand it also error-prone. Tomi knows more about

I have a simpler patch without the half-frame update
stuff, which works fine for me. I didn't notice any
tearing, but I haven't done any really fast image
updating. Also omapdrm has rotation support using
the DSS hardware, which also seems to work ok. I'm
still checking out what method is most suitable for

But yeah, we probably want to change the default
rotation. Especially since touchscreen should have
the same default rotation as the screen. (TS is
horizontal, correct orientation for keyboard usage)

I will have a look at the (default-)rotation when
basic panel support has been ACKed.
