This isn't a problem about editing .config directly.  I haven't done that
here.  Also, if 'make xconfig' would convert tristates to built-in, then
so would 'make oldconfig', which is done automatically if configs have
changed (or maybe it's 'make silentoldconfig').

I think that you are going to need to do something like Arnaud suggested
and use "depends on TCG_TPM=y" instead of just "depends on TCG_TPM",
unless you can convince someone that this is a kconfig bug.
