Subject: [PATCH 0/4] Fixes for TPM interrupt handling

This series fixes issues around the TPM driver interrupt handling. These
issues prevent TPM chips like the SLB 9670 to work over SPI. 

PATCH 1: The SPI implementation of the functions to read/write to/from
registers uses mutexes and thus require a sleepable context. For this
reason request a threaded interrupt handler.

PATCH 2: Simplify locality handling by taking the driver locality (0) at
driver startup and releasing it at driver shutdown. This also fixes a
warning at driver startup that is caused by a register access without prior
locality request.

PATCH 3: Fix and simplify the test for working interrupts.

PATCH 4: Only set the interrupts which are reported as being available.

With these patches applied the SLB 9670 works as expected: interrupts are
detected and the transmit/receive operations are controlled by interrupt

The patches are based on Linux mainline V5.11

Lino Sanfilippo (4):
  tpm: Use a threaded interrupt handler
  tpm: get locality before writing to TPM chip
  tpm: Fix test for interrupts
  tpm: Only enable supported irqs
