The check was introduced in 2:1.7.7-11 in January, removing it gets us
back to the state from earlier versions. Besides allowing rotations
again in some cases, I suppose it would lead to the driver refusing (or
failing?) to reallocate the framebuffer further down the stack, but have
no easy way to test (with kms the fb can be reallocated at runtime so
the max is something like 4kx4k or 8kx8k anyway).
