This implements the rotation using a list of matching input devices for which screen rotation needs to trigger a remapping.

For me, this works, except that remapped touch input on my lenovo x200 tablet seems to "snap" across the screen on a touch release when it is rotated, so ultimately, this patch is uncovering some other problem while fixing the rotation matching problem.
