Thanks for finishing this off Lino.
IIRC trying to catch the irq storm didn't work in the L490 case for
some reason, so we might still need the dmi entry for that one.
The info that the T490s had a pin wired up wrong came from Lenovo, but
this one even looks to be a different vendor so I wonder how often
this happens or if there is something else going on. Is it possible to
get info about the tpm used in the Inspur system? The datasheet online
doesn't mention it.
