Subject: [PATCH 0/4] TPM fixes

This patch series fixes some flaws in the TPM code. Most importantly a
reference count issue (patch 2) and a possible NULL pointer access
(patch 3). Patch 1 fixes the error path in tpmm_chip_alloc() and is in
preparation to patch 2 which extends this function. Patch 4 introduces
a new function tpm_chip_free() which is used as a counterpart to
tpm_chip_alloc(). The main reason for this function is to hide the
internals of tpm_chip cleanup by means of multiple reference count

Lino Sanfilippo (4):
  tpm: in case of error properly cleanup in tpmm_chip_alloc
  tpm: fix reference counting for struct tpm_chip
  tpm: in tpm2_del_space check if ops pointer is still valid
  tpm: Provide a function tpm_chip_free() to free tpm chips
