Found it:

"Looking at this closer, now you definately have to change the TPM
patch to call through to the other shutdown methods. We can say
current TPM drivers have no driver->shutdown, but we cannot be sure
about the bus->shutdown, so may as well call both from tpm's
class->shutdown.

I would say this should be done after the tpm2_shutdown completes as
lower level shutdowns could remove register access.

Jason"

And makes sense.

This patch is a NAK for two reasons:

1. No comment explaining this.
2. Patches are broken and they are in wrong order and cover letter is
   missing
