Right. Is there a rigid naming convention for these files? I don't see
any obvious pattern and there's no documentation for file names in here:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/ABI/README

The legacy TPM 1.x sysfs attributes are in a file named as sysfs-class-tpm.

Maybe we could:

* Rename existing sysfs-class-tpm as sysfs-class-tpm1
* Rename sysfs-driver-ppi as sysfs-class-tpm

What do you think? I don't know exactly what to do here. That is the
reason I haven't updated the documentation yet.

My bad, it is clutter in the patch file. I'll remove it.

I think it should.
