Hmm, I'm not big fan of this change. It adds code duplication and as
other models with the same issue using a different driver or panel-type
show up we will get more code duplication.

Also I'm not convinced that devicetree based platforms will not need
this. The whole devicetree as an ABI thing, which means that all
devicetree bindings need to be set in stone before things are merged
into the mainline, is done solely so that we can get vendors to ship
hardware with the dtb files included in the firmware.

I'm 100% sure that there is e.g. ARM hardware out there which uses
non upright mounted LCD panels (I used to have a few Allwinner
tablets which did this). And given my experience with the quality
of firmware bundled tables like ACPI tables I'm quite sure that
if we ever move to firmware included dtb files that we will need
quirks for those too.

Also calling this "used only for legacy x86 systems" is a bit
unfair IMHO, new UEFI models are still being added to the quirk list
today, for hardware which does not even ship yet. Actually 99%
of the models in the quirk list are UEFI only models, which do
not even support classic PC BIOS booting, so those systems are
anything but legacy.

I believe the only reason we have only had to deal with this on x86
so far is because the OOTB support for most ARM systems is less polished
then that for x86 systems and on ARM systems there are still more
important issues to tackle first.

Regards,

Hans
