fbcon, rotation.

I don't know how feasible this would be, as I haven't seen the code.

Rotated displays can be handy, for some purposes, for example, enabling
easily read 80*80 or taller displays.

Or, enabling an 80*40 mode to be read, while in bed.

Maybe an extra 3 bits on the end of the mode setting, for flip vertical,
flip horizontal, and rotate 90 degrees, also settable via proc.

Would this enable the X-fbcon server to do portrait displays?
