We've posted fixes to the devicetree well after the initial merge into
mainline before, so I don't see what you mean about the bindings being
set in stone. I also don't really see the point. The devicetree is in
the kernel. If there's some setting in the devicetree that we want to
change, it's effectively the same to make the change in the devicetree
versus some quirk setting. The only difference seems to be that making
the change in the devicetree is cleaner.

Is there a timeline to start using firmware bundled tables? Since the
quirk code only uses DMI, it will need to be changed anyways for
firmware bundled devicetree files anyways.

We could consolidate the duplicated code into another function that
calls drm_get_panel_orientation_quirks too. The only reason it's like
it is is because I initially only had the call to
drm_get_panel_orientation_quirk once in the code.

ARM just handles it in a different way. I'm not exactly sure how more
of the Android tablets do this, but it might just be handled entirely
in userspace with rotated splash screens on boot (so a device with a
180 degree panel has an upside down splash screen).
