Description of problem:
Changing screen rotation of DP or HDMI output and reverting repeatedly breaks video.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% - takes <5 attempts
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in 3 displays - DVI-I, HDMI, and DP (may work with fewer)
2. Open Display settings and pick HDMI or DP
3. Change the rotation of the display
4. Revert to normal rotation
5. GOTO 3
Screens go blank (powered but 100% black), going to VT does nothing (screen turns off to reinitialize but comes back the same). You can run `xrandr -display :0` via ssh - it looks like everything is normal from there. Xorg log looks normal.
Displays work normally even after many configuration changes.
I think you might need to double check this, I've been trying to reproduce this on the card that you lent me and I've only had one rotation failure (different symptoms then you described) out of probably around 100 tries, and that one just required rerotating the display to fix it. haven't been able to reproduce that one again whatsoever though.
