I don't think the fix is right; this is what you now have

	} else if ((rc & TPM2_RC_REFERENCE_H0) == TPM2_RC_REFERENCE_H0)
{

That should be

} else if (rc == TPM2_RC_REFERENCE_H0)

because the 0x9XX return codes don't have any parameter information
that needs stripping and (rc & TPM2_RC_REFERENCE_H0) ==
TPM2_RC_REFERENCE_H0)  will match any error code that has bits 11, 8
and 5 set.

I think the handle check was wrong too, it should have been

if (rc & 0xff) == TPM2_RC_HANDLE)

Because all you need to do is strip off the parameter information
