With the latest master branch if I remove the workaround:

[  395.161155] tpm_crb: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel
[  480.087136] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (323) occurred continue selftest

Obviously I'm going to keep the work around because I don't want to risk
breaking machines in the field. Because as a side effect for any machine
the driver always invokes CRB start I will definitely want to simplify
the state of the driver.

Shouldn't bios work arounds be keyed on something? What happens if a
system rolls around that cannot do ACPI + CRB start? How does this
system work in windows?

I didn't find anything better to key it on at the time and it has been
working for two years now without any problems.

I've though about this and came to conclusion that maybe I won't apply
this patch because it is good to keep this robustness in for now. I
think your point is valid.
