+          qemu: add TPM Proxy device support
+        </summary>
+        <description>
+          libvirt can now create guests using a new device type called
+          "TPM Proxy". The TPM Proxy connects to a TPM Resource Manager
+          present in the host, enabling the guest to run in secure virtual
+          machine mode with the help of an Ultravisor. Adding a TPM Proxy to
+          a pSeries guest brings no security benefits unless the guest is
+          running on a PPC64 host that has Ultravisor and TPM Resource Manager
+          support. Only one TPM Proxy is allowed per guest. A guest using
+          a TPM Proxy device can instantiate another TPM device at the same
+          time. This device is supported only for pSeries guests via the new
+          'spapr-tpm-proxy' model of the TPM 'passthrough' backend.
