So I've consulted the issue, I wasn't not correct in the description. Tboot cannot acquire  the locality, unless the host driver relinquish it,
so the issue is opposite, driver is expected to relinquish the locality for tboot to work correctly. This is current status, other behavior will need a different implementation on both sides. 

Hopes that clears the question.
