Don't put kernel specifics into bindings.

What's TCON? Something Mediatek specific IIRC.

The 'rotation' property should be defined purely based on how the
panel is mounted relative to a device's orientation. If the display
pipeline has some ability to handle rotation, that's a feature of the
display pipeline and not the panel.

BTW, are these upstream because they look like GPIO controlled
supplies which we model with gpio-regulator binding typically.
