Bug Description

Display rotation does not work when the NVIDIA driver is used. This is caused by a distro patch to xserver which disables it, because the NVIDIA driver had issues in the past.

NVIDIA Graphics driver 375.66 has supported the rotation since Ubuntu 16.04.

[Test case]
Install nvidia blob, try to rotate with xrandr or the display capplet.

[Regression potential]
No other distro shipped with such a patch, so there should be minimal risk of regressing anything.
