With a squared off leading edge as shown it doesn't matter since at even a fairly modest angle of attack you'll get separation/turbulation at the upper corner of the leading edge.

Assuming you don't have the same Kline Fogelman inspired leading edge piece on the bottom as well you'll be able to find out for yourself by flying up to a gentle stall while upright and then again while inverted. I think you'll find that the stall speed for a given angle ends up being the same near as our eyes can tell.
