D'oh, I misread that. This will indeed need to be fixed to support
90/270 degree rotation.

We should definitely arrange for the panel orientation to be declared
properly now that there's a mechanism for it, instead of the hack with
a kernel parameter. This doesn't require any of the "orientation
quirks" stuff, you can also set
connector->display_info.panel_orientation and then call
drm_connector_init_panel_orientation_property(connector, 0, 0).

Although, I suppose it might be nice for testing purposes to add an
orientation quirk that obtains its value from a kernel parameter.
