Again, DT bindings describe h/w devices, not just a protocol. A device
is more than just a protocol interface. There's clocks, power rails,
resets, interrupts, firmware, etc.

Unless there's something special about TPM chips that makes none of this
applicable and no chip will ever have any quirks (or extensions) in
their protocol to work-around, then you need compatible string(s) that
are specific to the TPM chip. You can have tcg,tpm-tis-i2c as a
fallback, but you need specific compatible to handle any quirks.
