[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] RFR: 8203485: [freetype] text rotated on 180 degrees is too narrow

Fix sounds good.

The test has a bug
   47     static final Font fnt = new Font("Time New Roamn", Font.PLAIN, 1).deriveFont(12.0f);

"Roamn" should be "Roman".

But since Linux is very unlikely to have that font, I think you should 
use Font.SERIF instead.

Actually I am unclear why you need to use deriveFont and can't
test this with the constructor taking int of 12.
