I have no access to the system right now, but want to point out, that 
the log was created by `journactl -k`, so I do not know if that messes 
with the time stamps. I checked the output of `dmesg` but didn’t see the 
TPM error messages in the output – only `tpm_tis MSFT0101:00: 2.0 TPM 
(device-id 0xFE, rev-id 4)`. Do I need to pass a different error message 
to `dmesg`?

I’ll try to test this on Monday.

Kind regards,
