Yes, the screaming interrupt goes away, although it is replaced by
these messages when the driver starts:

[ 3.725131] tpm_tis IFX0740:00: 2.0 TPM (device-id 0x1B, rev-id 16)
[ 3.725358] tpm tpm0: tpm_try_transmit: send(): error -5
[ 3.725359] tpm tpm0: [Firmware Bug]: TPM interrupt not working,
polling instead

If the choice is "error message + polled-mode" vs "pinning a cpu with
interrupts" I'd accept the former, but wanted Jarkko with his
maintainer hat to weigh in.

Is there a simple sanity check I can run to see if the TPM is still
operational in this state?
