It does not work for our use case. We gave enough justification so far. 
TEE bus enumeration needs to be flexible to support our use case and 
more future use cases.

And then how does fTPM driver pass TCG Logs to the TPM framework? 
It requires changes to the upstream TPM framework to ask the driver
explicitly for the TCG Logs. 

Note that this also requires changes to the fTPM TA that has been existing for few years.

Is it not possible to add flexibility in TEE bus enumeration framework to
support platform specific properties through OF nodes or ACPI?

Devices enumerated by buses such as i2c can read platform specific properties.
With this flexibility added, more future use cases through TEE bus.
