The register read was returning all 1s.  The issue was reported to the
BIOS team and a fix is in process, but that may take some time to move
through all the vendors.  So in the meantime, see the next comment below.

A patch has been submitted which adds a command timeout and should also
resolve this issue.  Please see:
  https://marc.info/?l=linux-crypto-vger&m=153436754612783&w=2

This patch is not yet accepted and needs adjusting when being applied to
an older kernel (4.16 - 4.18).  Once accepted, versions of the patch will
be submitted to stable.

Thanks,
Tom
