No idea about the FSL kernel, but 180° rotation can't be done without
going through the IC, as far as I know. For a straight vertical flip
you'd just have to set the VF bit on the scanout IDMAC channel's CPMEM.
For example as a quick hack on v4.6-rc4:

-----8<-----
----->8-----

I suppose that could be hooked up to the KMS rotation property (reflect-y).

Hi, Phillip!

Thank you for the fast responce.
Ifollowed your adviceandrealized thatIincorrectlyformulatedthought. I 
need a 180 degree rotation, not the flip.
I got the vertical flip (screen reflected by Y axis), butmy attempt to 
reflect it by X axis (xrandr --output DISP3\ BG --reflect x) failed 
(nothing happened).

Is there a way to do 180deg rotation somehow?

That is because the IDMAC controller considers the VF bit when
calculating the line start addresses (so reflect Y works) but completely
ignores the HF bit. The IC has a line buffer that is sampled backwards
if the HF bit is set.

If your display is < 1024 pixels in both width and height, it should be
possible to get reflect x functionality by hooking up the IC -> DMFC
direct flow.
