True, IMA is not selecting the older TPM vendor specific modules, but
only the newer TPM_TIS and now TPM_CRB modules.  That doesn't imply
that IMA only supports some TPMs.  It means that by default, these
TPMs are builtin.  Anyone building a kernel, can select the vendor
specific TPM to be builtin.
