We've already waited too much on this, is it acceptable to make the
workaround depend on (and only on) the module parameter you've set in
patch 6/6? Therefore no need to check the vendor ID.

<snip>
+MODULE_PARM_DESC(itpm, "Force iTPM workarounds (found on some Lenovo laptops)");
</snip>
It already mentions _Force_, which in many cases maps to "it's all your
responsibility"...

And yes, still without PNP, but at least, working.
