If the video split is done properly then doing screen rotation on top
of it should be easy.

I would like to see that as well.

However, I am unsure as to how this would be configured.

In my current attempt to get this into the video mode parser without
adding too much stuff I have added a small bit that extracts the
direction from a few letters that are in front of the size.


800x600x32 gives 800x600 resolution in 32bpp

E800x600 or MF800x600x16 gives 800x600 resolution with screen in
another direction.

This should work but I am not sure this would a nice way to specify
the screen direction for the end user.

What is the state of graphics on EFI?
