In the overflow case wouldn't you want to pass an error code up instead 
of just showing a WARN trace?

The helper functions can't tell the difference, and the net outcome is 
going to be that if there is overflow you get a warning trace in the 
kernel log and whatever garbage "value" happened to have going to the 
caller.  It's a programmer error but it's also unpredictable what 
happens here.

I think it's cleaner to have callers of 
tpm_buf_read_u8/tpm_buf_read_u16/tpm_buf_read_u32 to to be able to know 
something wrong happened.
