do you know what value previous servers reported? In the end that's what 1.4.1
and 1.5 should report too.

The device should generate DevicePresenceNotifies if it is rotated through the
ChangeDeviceControl request. The event generation is part of the DIX, so the
driver shouldn't get around that. If it is rotated through other means we may
have to patch the server.
