The main device is currently not properly released due to one additional
reference to the 'devs' device which is only released in case of a TPM 2.
So, also get the additional reference only in case of a TPM2.

Fixes: fdc915f7f719 ("tpm: expose spaces via a device link /dev/tpmrm<n>")

Excellent, thank you. I'll send this with some other small fixes for
4.12 to James rather sooner than later.
