    With the Linux 5.15 merge window out of the way, the first drm-misc-next pull request has been sent in to DRM-Next for staging until the Linux 5.16 merge window opens up about two months from now...

    Wait, seriously? The Steam Deck's display is rotated even though it is a console you hold in landscape? Why?

      Maybe it's a screen designed for tablets where portrait orientation is the default one?

        Yes, other devices of the same type also use displays designed for phones-tablets. So the default orientation is portrait. I am not surprised it is the case here also. Good to see it's in the kernel already.

          These days most manufacturers of palmtop/handheld landscape orientation devices have to deal with this issue. The vast majority of the screens under 12 inches (edit: especially those ten inches or less) that are manufactured are portrait orientation by default, especially if they have a decent resolution.
