    Thanks, I reached a point when my head became muddled with bit
    manipulations, so I used arch-specific bitops but complete forgot
    that they were atomic :-)

    Works in little-endian too, so thank you very much. cfbimageblit may
    also suffer from this same mistake (mine). So can you test with
    12x22 fonts at rotate 1 or 3 with acceleration off?

    This particular line in cfbimgblit.c:slow_imageblit() is definitely

    - color = (*s & 1 << (BIT_NR(l))) ? fgcolor : bgcolor;
    + color = (*s & (1 << l)) ? fgcolor : bgcolor;
