  screen is black after xrandr rotate command

Status in linux-lts-vivid package in Ubuntu:

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:

  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:
