Auto Rotate Auto Lock

Auto Rotate Auto Lock


Workaround fix for phones affected by the "high load when auto rotate is enabled" bug (system_server is the process that hogs the CPU).

Thanks to jwei (http://goo.gl/MbkS4) for the instructions on how to handle the screen on / off events.

Recent changes:
* Enabled checkbox in settings that disables the "lock mode preservation": Previous implementation suffered from the bug that sometimes the lock state could not be read successfully before the screen turned off. This caused the rotation to be disabled even after the screen was back on. If the checkbox is not checked (which is default), the rotation will ALWAYS be re-enabled when phone is turned back on.
