I mean do not add the code to handle this to tpm_i2c_infineon.c but in
the common chip code instead.

tpm_i2c_infineon.c should only parse DT properties that are relavent
to the bus that delivers commands to the TPM, things that apply to how
a TPM chip operates should be handled in the core code because they
apply to any command transport bus.
