As Vladimir points out, this can eventually work on EFI too, but EFI is
lagging behind when it comes to graphical support.  In any case, if we
really want to support rotation it should be generic.

Btw, were you thinking about rotation in multiples of PI/2, or arbitrary
floats?  The former is not too hard, but the latter can be a PITA, I don't
think it's worth it.
