Hi Hsin-Yi,

The following comment appears in every panel driver:
+ /*
+ * drm drivers are expected to call drm_panel_get_orientation() to get
+ * panel's orientation then drm_connector_set_panel_orientation() to
+ * set the property before drm_dev_register(). Otherwise there will be
+ * a WARN_ON if orientation is set after drm is registered.
+ */

Please move it to the drm_panel c or h file, it is noise to add it to
all panel drivers.
