SubjectRe: [PATCH] tpm_infineon: Fix suspend/resume handler for pnp_driver
Hi,

On suspend, the TPM framework sends a command "TPM_SaveState" to the chip to
inform it about the upcoming suspend. Therefore it is necessary to have the
function tpm_pm_suspend called (either directly or via pnp). On resume, the
state will automatically be restored by the TPM.

The patch looks good to me, but I haven't had a chance to test it, yet.
As soon as I did, I'll get back to you.

Thanks,
Marcel Selhorst
