Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] prepare for TPM 2.0

This patch set fixes two race conditions in the TPM subsystem:

* Two-phase initialization for struct tpm_chip so that device can
  initialize fully initialize before exposing itself to the user
  space. Also, in future TPM2 devices must be flagged before they
  can be registered.
* Machines where there are two TPM devices exposed by ACPI have
  a racy lookup for the PPI interface. This patch set fixes this

In addition, transmit_cmd() is renamed as tpm_transmit_cmd() and
made opaque so that separate command structure can be introduced
for TPM2.

Comments about v1:
* I think this could be pulled to 3.18 because this clearly fixes
  bugs in the current implementation.

Changes since v1:
* Removed dev_dbgs from tpm-chip.c
* Use driver_lock for dev_mask (the problem was existing also in
  tpm-interface.c when the code was moved).
* Check for bios_dir nullity when removed (the problem was existing
  also in tpm-interface.c when the code was moved).
* Cleaned up the control flow in tpm_i2c_stm_st33.c and tpm_atmel.c.
* Cleaned up the control flow in tpm_ppi.c.

Comments about v2:
* Thanks to Jason Gunthorpe for reviewing v1.
* I'm at T2 infosec conference right now so I wasn't able to test the
  force paths in tpm_atmel.c and tpm_tis.c.

Changes since v2:
* Regression in tpm-dev.c, must use tpm_transmit() instead of

  tpm: merge duplicate transmit_cmd() functions
  tpm: two-phase chip management functions
  tpm: fix multiple race conditions in tpm_ppi.c
