tpm_tis: Probing function for Intel iTPM bug
This patch introduces a function for automatic probing for the Intel iTPM STS_DATA_EXPECT flaw. The patch splits the current tpm_tis_send function into 2 parts where the 1st part is now called tpm_tis_send_data() and merely sends the data to the TPM. This function is then used for probing. The new tpm_tis_send function now first calls tpm_tis_send_data and if that succeeds has the TPM process the command and waits until the response is there. The probing for the Intel iTPM is only invoked if the user has not passed itpm=1 as parameter for the module *or* if such a TPM was detected via ACPI. Previously it was necessary to pass itpm=1 when also passing force=1 to the module when doing a 'modprobe'. This function is more general than the ACPI test function and the function relying on ACPI could probably be removed.
