Matthew pointed out that having a hook in NVS driver is better solution because it is nil functionality if the TPM driver is loaded. We need functions to: 1. Request a region from the NVS driver (when tpm_crb loads) 2. Release a region back to the NVS Driver (when tpm_crb unloads). My proposal would unnecessarily duplicate code and also leave a side-effect when TPM is not used in the first place. I see this as the overally best solution. If you can come up with a patch for the NVS side and changes to CRB drivers to utilize the new hooks, then combined with Vanya's changes we have a sustainable solution for AMD fTPM. /Jarkko
