SubjectRe: [BISECTED] tpm CLKRUN breaks PS/2 keyboard and touchpad on Braswell system

On a default Fedora install the TPM isn't used, but the CLKRUN_EN toggling
happens for all I/O operations with the TPM and the driver does access the
TPM on its probe function.

So even if you don't use it, the driver will mess with the CLKRUN signal.

Jarkko and Azhar,

I wonder what's the solution for this. I understand the quirk is needed for
some systems, but on the other hand breaks functionality for other devices.

I think that at the very least this should be disabled by default and have a
Kconfig option or module parameter to enable if needed. Since as James said,
it causes regressions even for people that are not using the TPM device.

Although probably reverting the offending commits is the right thing to do
until a proper solution is proposed.
