As has been seen recently, binding the buffer allocation and tpm_buf
together is sometimes far from optimal. The buffer might come from the
caller namely when tpm_send() is used by another subsystem. In addition we
can stability in call sites w/o rollback (e.g. power events)>

Take allocation out of the tpm_buf framework and make it purely a wrapper
for the data buffer.

Switch from GFP_HIGHUSER to GFP_KERNEL. On 32-bit platforms kmap() space
could be unnecessarily wasted because of using GFP_HIGHUSER by taking a
page of from the highmem.

The kmap/kunmap needs removing as well, and now the data_page field
isn't necessary, so it can go.  I think the result should be something
like the below (uncompiled and untested).

Can you elaborate on this a bit more?  I must have missed the

What you're doing here is taking a single object with a single lifetime
and creating two separate objects with separate lifetimes and a
dependency.  The problem with doing that is that it always creates
subtle and hard to debug corner cases where the dependency gets
violated, so it's usually better to simplify the object lifetimes by
reducing the dependencies and combining as many dependent objects as
possible into a single object with one lifetime.  Bucking this trend
for a good reason is OK, but I think a better reason than "is sometimes
far from optimal" is needed.

Refer to e13cd21ffd50 ("tpm: Wrap the buffer from the caller to
tpm_buf in tpm_send()") for the details.

Yes, I get that, but to my mind that calls for moving the
tpm_init/destroy_buf into the callers of tpm_send (which, for the most
part, already exist), which means there's no need to separate the buf
and data lifetimes.

Sumit has been working on a patchset that does this.  His patchset
converts both the asymmetric keys and trusted keys code to using the
tpm_buf manipulation functions.

Right, I see your point. We can just say instead in a comment that
tpm_buf_init() is optional if you need to allocate the buffer and
do not provide your own.

Thanks for the remark. I have to agree with this.

And it is also in a shape that it can soon be merged (within
few iterations at most).

Subject: [PATCH] tpm: use GFP kernel for tpm_buf allocations

The current code uses GFP_HIGHMEM, which is wrong because GFP_HIGHMEM
(on 32 bit systems) is memory ordinarily inaccessible to the kernel
and should only be used for allocations affecting userspace.  In order
to make highmem visible to the kernel on 32 bit it has to be kmapped,
which consumes valuable entries in the kmap region.  Since the tpm_buf
is only ever used in the kernel, switch to using a GFP_KERNEL
allocation so as not to waste kmap space on 32 bits.
