Reverting 1ea32c83c699 ("tpm_tis_core: Set TPM_CHIP_FLAG_IRQ before
probing for interrupts") would at least allow people impacted by this
to boot their systems without disabling the tpm, or blacklisting the
module while we figure this out. From what I can tell the tpm_tis code
was operating in that state since 570a36097f30 ("tpm: drop 'irq' from
struct tpm_vendor_specific") until Stefan's patch.

Jerry
