What is "concerniog operations"? Unfamiliar term. Maybe just consistently
se chip->ops? Now you have also "tpm_chip operations" and chip->ops, in
addition to "concerning operations" in one paragraph commit message.

Instead of cross referencing please describe the scenario (i.e.
the sequence of operations) of failure.
