Unfortunately, the thing what I can say for this is small.

With review, it seems anybody doesn't call pnp_driver->driver.suspend/resume().
(pnp_bus calls pnp_device->pnp_driver->suspend/resume())

I guess it might be tpm_infineon can't suspend/resume properly. However,
with it, I don't know what happen actually. (it might be, tpm can't
verify the security issue on suspend/resume process? or can't wakeup
from tpm? or spend power? or other?)

With quick search, I found commit 1b8333b02aa281a2849331ad62ee595c46a1c5ac.
It converts tpm from pci to pnp, and start to use
pnp_devier.driver.suspend/resume.

But, I'm not sure there is the actual user of
pnp_driver->driver.suspend/resume() at that commit time.

Yes.
