This function should better spell out why it talks about rotation versus
orientation.

It happens that orientation, due to bad design choices is named rotation
in DT.
But then this function is all about orientation, that just happens to be
named rotation in DT.
And the comments associated to the function should reflect this.

something like:
/**
 * of_drm_get_panel_orientation - look up the orientation of the panel using a
 * device tree node
 * @np: device tree node of the panel
 * @orientation: orientation enum to be filled in
 *
 * Looks up the rotation property of a panel in the device tree.
 * The orientation of the panel is expressed as a property named
 * "rotation" in the device tree.
 * The rotation in the device tree is counter clockwise.
 *
 * Return: 0 when a valid orientation value (0, 90, 180, or 270) is read or the
 * rotation property doesn't exist. -EERROR otherwise.
 */

This would at least remove some of my confusiuon.
And then maybe add a bit more explanation to the binding property
description too.
