diabonas [1] filed a request to merge tpm2-pk11 [2] into tpm2-pk11-git

This package should be merged into tpm2-pk11-git for the following

- It is a VCS package (as the upstream repository does not have any
releases), so it should have been named tpm2-pk11-git in the first
- Moreover, this package does not build from the original upstream
repository (https://github.com/irtimmer/tpm2-pk11), but from an almost
unmodified fork (https://github.com/krisclarkdev/tpm2-pk11). However,
this fork has not been updated for over half a year, while there has
been active development on the original upstream repository.
- As a result of this, this package currently does not build
successfully as it still depends on an older version of tpm2-tss (that
is not listed as a dependency, BTW) that is not available on the AUR.

In conclusion, I see no reason to have this broken package on the AUR
and suggest to merge it into the actively maintained tpm2-pk11-git.
