Bug Description

When running "xrandr --output xxxxx --rotate inverted " on intel platforms with ubuntu 14.04.3, screen becomes black.

Steps to reproduce:
1. install ubuntu 14.04.3 with intel graphic card and boot up into desktop
2. run xrandr --output eDP1 --rotate inverted

Expect result:
eDP screen rotate inverted

Actual result:
eDP screen is black.

This is the same bug as https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1446979 but the fix seems to have been backported to the Vivid kernel. It also affects 14.04.3 with this kernel:
