I'd just ignore 'backend' for now - none of the other existing devices
suport anything other than dom0 as the backend, so its no loss to assume
dom0 for TPM too.

What is 'instance' ?

For element I'd prefer to just call it '<tpm>' - the 'v' is redundant
since every device is virtual here :-)

No one has ever asked for it before, which is why we've not supported
this to date. I don't have any objection to supporting it, so patches
would be welcomed.
