The comment says "enum" but the type used is an int.
Why not use enum drm_panel_orientation?

Initially I read -EEROOR as a specific error code.
But I gues the semantic is to say that a negative error code is returned
if something was wrong.
As we do not use the "-EERROR" syntax anywhere else in drm, please
reword like we do in other places.


Also - it is worth to mention that the rotation returned is
DRM_MODE_PANEL_ORIENTATION_UNKNOWN if the property is not specified.
I wonder if this is correct, as no property could also been
interpretated as DRM_MODE_PANEL_ORIENTATION_NORMAL.
And in most cases the roation property is optional, so one could
assume that no property equals 0 degree.
