You mean there 'was this comment'? I actually removed this comment
because I didn't know what it meant or what it has to do with 'platform':

-
-       /* Platform-specific data follows */
+       u8  start_method_specific[12];
+       u32 log_area_minimum_length;
+       u64 log_area_start_address;

Specs:
https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/wp-content/uploads/TCG_ACPIGeneralSpecification_v1.20_r8.pdf

PDF Page 16 / Doc page 10 bottom.

start_method_specific is obviously related to the start_method field.
The subsequent two fields are optional and show those 2 filelds we know
from the TCPA ACPI table.
