I did now revisit this and you are right that my choice of word was not
exactly correct. I apologize for that. The patch introduces API that we
would take away and that does make much sense.

The best way to sort things out is to just fix the warnings and leave
the TPM 2.0 part open coded inside tpm_pcr_extend(). The rationale for
this is to avoid unnecessary mainline changes when ever possible (which
is bad for backporting for stable kernels).
