I thought so, just had to check.

I'm using http://users.tkk.fi/~tajyrink/moko/kernel_20100108_nodebug_nopreempt/
but it should be very close to
http://pkg-fso.nomeata.de/sid/linux-image-2.6.29-openmoko-gta02 and
others, I think, have xrandr working as well with 2.6.29. I installed
it simply with apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-glamo.

xorg.conf consists only of:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Videocard0"
        Driver          "glamo"

xrandr tells me:
Screen 0: minimum 240 x 320, current 480 x 640, maximum 480 x 640
LCD connected 480x640+0+0 (normal left inverted right) 43mm x 58mm
   480x640        72.5*+
   240x320        50.2

Since you mention QtMoko, are you sure you're not using QtMoko's
2.6.32 kernel with KMS support? There the result might be a bit
different, especially because the latest fix from git is not yet in
Debian. Also note that xrandr --output LCD --rotate xyz doesn't work
currently, only xrandr -o xyz.
