olpc-rotate rotates 'Screen', should rotate ouput

When calling xrandr -o [orientation] we are actually rotating the "global screen". This exposes various xorg/xrandr bugs. As we found in #10453, the DPI settings are completely wrong for left and right orientations.

The fix is to use xrandr --output [output] --rotate [orientation].

This is addressed in recent olpc-kbdshim versions.
