This is because both were previously defined in the kernel. Rotation
was defined as a binding in the devicetree for panels (which is where
we wanted to put this property) and orientation already exists as a
DRM property.

If we want to change one, I would suggest the rotation binding since
it doesn't have any upstream users yet.
