Setting display_rotate=1 rotates the screen and X.org but the display only uses about half the screen space.
Setting lcd_display_rotate=1 rotates the screen but not X.org.

xrandr also doesn't seem to work but it's possible it won't work without the VC4 driver loaded. This driver can break some things. There is an alternative driver, vc4-fkms-v3d available that may work better.

xorg.conf can rotate and does fill the screen:

Section "Device"                                  
        Identifier          "Builtin Default fbdev Device 0" 
        Driver              "fbturbo" 
        Option              "Rotate" "CW" 

But this needs to also have tslib rotated. Doing that requires adding "rot=1" to the linear filter in /etc/ts.conf. However, that didn't seem to work when I tried it. I still get the wrong coordinates passed in. I may need to tell the launcher that we're in rotated mode, or maybe tell the touchProcessor API that we're rotated.
