rotated setup as well. The question here would be whether it is tearing
or flicker? Tearing would just be the usual frontbuffer rendering
artifact. However, flicker could be misrendering of a DRI client (seeing
the backbuffer etc) or a clock timing issue (pipe underruns and whatnot).
Using a rotated framebuffer would disable pageflipping, and prevent the
historically common glitches when flipping. (Historically? That's
