I meant something like the following [0]. That way, it'll be disabled by default
but still users that really need this workaround can do:

$ ./scripts/config --enable EXPERT
$ ./scripts/config --enable CONFIG_TCG_TIS_ENABLE_CLKRUN_QUIRK

What do you think?

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] tpm: Add Kconfig option to avoid disabling LPC CLKRUN

Commit 5e572cab92f0 ("tpm: Enable CLKRUN protocol for Braswell systems")
added logic in the TPM TIS driver to disable the Low Pin Count CLKRUN
signal during TPM transations.

Unfortunately this breaks other devices that are attached into the LPC
bus (e.g: PS/2 mouse and keyboards), so the CLKRUN signal shouldn't be
disabled unconditionally.

Until a proper solution is found, add a Kconfig option to explicitly
enable that behavior if needed instead of doing it unconditionally on
all Braswell machines.
