Subject[GIT PULL] tpmdd fixes for Linux v5.5-rc6
There has been a bunch of reports (e.g. [*]) reporting that when this
commit is applied it causes on some machines boot freezes.

Unfortunately hardware where this commit causes a failure is not widely
available (only one I'm aware is Lenovo T490), which means we cannot
predict yet how long it will take to properly fix tpm_tis interrupt
probing.

Thus, the least worst short term action is to revert the code to the
state before this commit. In long term we need fix the tpm_tis probing
code to work on machines that Stefan's patches were supposed to fix.

With these patches reverted nothing fatal happens, TPM is fallbacked
to be used in polling mode (which is not in the end too bad because
there are no high throughput workloads for TPM).
