If your graphics engine supports virtual screens and panning, one simple way is
  - Make the virtual vertical resolution (fb_var_screeninfo.yres_virtual) 2
    times the real vertical resolution (fb_var_screeninfo.yres)
  - Use panning to switch from the top (fb_var_screeninfo.yoffset = 0) to the
    bottom (fb_var_screeninfo.yoffset = fb_var_screeninfo.yres) and vice versa

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
