Thanks for looking into this!  Instead of changing 'TCG_TPM' to
'TCG_TPM=y', the dependency should be on 'TRUSTED_KEYS=y'.  Then when
I've refactored ENCRYPTED_KEYS, removing the ENCRYPTED_KEYS dependency
on TRUSTED_KEYS, the EVM dependency would be '(TRUSTED_KEYS=y ||
TRUSTED_KEYS=n)'.  Do you want a temporary fix for now?

thanks,

Mimi
