you may be right about the misdesign, but as a matter of fact
there are systems which have the TPMs reset line connected to a GPIO and not
the system reset. For those systems we should provide a way to let at least the
driver put the TPM out of reset (note that on those systems the TPM reset can
be triggered by software anyway by asserting/deasserting the GPIO line).
