Suppress the error logging when the core TPM driver sends commands
to the VTPM proxy driver and -EPIPE is returned in case the VTPM
proxy driver is 'closed' (closed anonymous file descriptor).  This
error code is only returned by the send function and by tpm_transmit
when the VTPM proxy driver is being used.

Perhaps this would read better as

	if (rc < 0) {
		if (rc != -EPIPE)
			dev_err(etc...);
		goto out;
	}

though for etc, perhaps
			dev_err(&chip->dev, "%s: %tpm_send: error %d\n",
				__func__, rc);

This have to hold up until some time next week as I have to make sure
that I understand that this is the right choice, which requirest to
study vtpm implementation.

I'm travelling right now.
