Ohai should surface TPM chip information

Currently, Ohai does not report anything about a TPM chip when a device contains one.


We have a use-case where we would like to write Chef code that guards against the existence of a TPM 2.0 chip and had to resort to shelling-out to Powershell in order to retrieve this info. If Ohai were to surface this information, we would not have to perform such hackery.
