I just specified "fbcon=rotate:1" on the command line. This will
result in the kernel console being rendered rotated on all displays.
This directly renders the console rotated, so it's completly
unrelated to omapdrm. X is not affected and will start without
rotation being applied. For Droid 4 / OMAP4 xrandr based rotation
does work without any patches, though (except for [0]).

I plan to add support for the new "panel orientation" property [1]
to omapdrm once support for manually updated displays landed. This
should help to get rotation applied correctly out of the box without
any hacks required in the omapdrm code.
