  display orientation on touchscreens should also rotate touch input

Status in unity-control-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When manually changing the screen orientation in unity control center, it only rotates the screen output, but keeps touch screen input at normal orientation. 
  As a result, the orientation for touch input does not correspond to what the user sees on the screen. On a touchscreen, it is even almost impossible to revert such a change,compared to mouse/trackpad (where you can orient on the cursor movement). Only well-prepared or advanced users have the terminal commands ready to orient both screen output and touch input correctly.
