xrandr output from GPD Win 2


I find that "panel orientation" output property is not supported in KScreen. Linux kernel include quirks for several devices with hint about panel position: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/drivers/gpu/drm/drm_panel_orientation_quirks.c

For example on GPD Win 1 and GPD Win 2 panels mounted as portrait, so kernel include hint about that:

xrandr output from GPD Win 2 is attached (look for "panel orientation" line).

This hint is taken into account by text console and by Gnome Shell, but seems like ignored by KScreen.
