I think it's mostly got to do with the compositor (or X) not knowing
what "normal" or "0 degrees rotation" corresponds to.

I would expect the baseline test for this wouldn't involve iio-sensor-
proxy at all, and boot to the desktop with the expected orientation
showing up in the desktop env/XRandR as "not rotated".

Eg. for the GPD Win which does have this problem, this should appear as
being rotated (image 1):
But not this (image 2):

After that, the problem is whether the accelerometer is mounted the
same way as the "non-rotated screen" (option 2), or the "non-rotated
screen" (option 1), which would show what quirking is needed.
