The problem is already known and a swap option has been introduced:
commit 6680884a4420 ("Input: ad7879 - add option to correct xy axis")

However, with that the meaning of the new boolean is inverted since
the underlying values are already swapped. With this change, a true
in swap_xy actually swaps the two axis.

Hi Michael,

It seems that swap_xy is not used in any board which is in mainline,
hence swap_xy is always false. Therefore, up until now all boards
actually used swapped axis. However, I doubt that the blackfin boards
really have those axis swapped, it is probably more likely that the
userspace calibration took care of it.

However, if they are really swapped, we should set the swap_xy flag
to 1 for those board...

Do you happen to now what is the case with those boards?

Hi Stefan,

I would be hesitant to invert the default behaviour of the driver.
Too many people in the field already using it as it is.

A XY swap can have multiple reasons.

Lot's of small VGA/QVGA TFTs have the option to switch the scan direction from Landscape to Portrait. In addition you can also rotate and flip or mirror using VDMA options. So it really depends on the use case, how the touch panel is mounted to the screen or how it is wired.
