Thanks for providing this. Makes it much easier to see what the actual
differences between the devices are.

Do we have a general policy on how to support devices that are very
similar but need special handling in some places? Not duplicating the
whole driver just to change a few things definitely seems like an
improvement (and has already been done in the past, as with
TPM_TIS_ITPM_WORKAROUND). But should all the code just be added to
tpm_tis_spi.c? Or is there some way to keep a clearer separation,
especially when (in the future) we have multiple devices that all have
their own set of deviations from the spec?
