Since there is only one thread using TPM chip at a time to transmit data
we can migrate struct tpm_buf to struct tpm_chip. This makes the use of
it more fail safe as the buffer is allocated from heap when the device
is created and not for every transaction.

This is needed characteristic for the resource manager so that we can
minimize the probability of failure for loading, saving and flushings
of TPM contexts.

Eh? What? I don't think that is the case..

We don't serialize until we hit tramsit_cmd at which point the buffer
is already being used and cannot be shared between threads.

Only /dev/tpmX has any sort of locking, but even that is
designed to be optional (eg I patch it out of my kernels), and only
covers userspace, not contention with in-kernel threads.

Why would the resource manager need a single global tpm buffer? That
seems like a big regression from where we have been going. I don't
think this is a good idea to go down this road.

Please try and avoid this sort of churn in patches that change things..

There is a regression in the patch. All functions that use 'tr_buf'
should take tpm_mutex first and use TPM_TRANSMIT_UNLOCKED. There's
also a similar regression in TPM space patch that I have to correct.

What? 'tr_buf' is not specifically for resource manager. This commit
makes creating TPM commands more fail-safe because there is no need
to allocate page for every transmit.

For RM decorations this is really important because I rather would have
them fail as rarely as possible. If this would become a scalability
issue then the granularity could be reconsidered.

It wasn't there on purpose. I do not know how these slipped. I can
clean these up.

No, you can't steal TPM_TRANSMIT_UNLOCKED and tpm_mutex for this, that
is to allow a chain of commands to execute atomicly, so a new lock is
needed just for the tr_buf.

That doesn't seem all that important, honestly. There kernel does not
fail single page allocations without a lot of duress.

Why? The RM design already seems to have the prepare/commit/abort
kind of model so it can already fail. What does it matter if the
caller can fail before getting that far?

It seems like alot of dangerous churn to introduce a new locking model
without a really good reason...

Yeah, I just noticed it :-) That kind of formed by accident when I
experimented with various models of rolling back in an error situation.

OK, thanks for the feedback. I understad your arguments but as this
was an RFC patch set I don't want to go more details like these but
I take your advice seriously.

I'll start preparing the first non-RFC version. I'm happy that the beef
(i.e. the stuff in tpm2-space.c) has been well accepted!
