Xrandr rotating a USB 2.0 display-link device?

I don't know about the latest dlink chips, but the older ones do not
support hardware rotation, and the standard backup method for implementing
screen rotation in Xorg fails for devices (like USB-attached Video) that
don't have standard framebuffers.

I know that there are plans to back-port an alternative screen rotation
scheme for older dlink chips, but its pretty far down the 'to do' list, and
probably won't get done any time soon, if at all.
