From: Stefan Berger <stefanb@linux.ibm.com>

When rngd is run as root then lots of these types of message will appear
in the kernel log if the TPM has been configure to provide random bytes:

[ 7406.275163] tpm tpm0: tpm_transmit: tpm_recv: error -4

The issue is caused by the following call that is interrupted while
waiting for the TPM's response.

sig = wait_event_interruptible(ibmvtpm->wq,
                               !ibmvtpm->tpm_processing_cmd);

Rather than waiting for the response in the low level driver, have it use
the polling loop in tpm_try_transmit() that uses a command's duration to
poll until a result has been returned by the TPM, thus ending when the
timeout has occurred but not responding to signals and ctrl-c anymore.
To stay in this polling loop we now extend tpm_ibmvtpm_status() to return
PM_STATUS_BUSY for as long as the vTPM is busy. Since we will need the
timeouts in this loop now we get the TPM 1.2 and TPM 2 timeouts with
tpm_get_timeouts().

Rename the tpm_processing_cmd to tpm_status in ibmvtpm_dev and set the
TPM_STATUS_BUSY flag while the vTPM is busy processing a command.

To recreat the issue start rngd like this:

sudo rngd -r /dev/hwrng -t

Tested-by: Nageswara R Sastry <rnsastry@linux.ibm.com>

Tested with
rngd -r /dev/hwrng -t
rngd -r /dev/tpm0 -t

There are no tpm errors seen.

Thank you.

Are you sure? It's a bit mask we are using this with. Using 'true' for 
these type of operations doesn't sound right.

         u8 status = chip->ops->status(chip);
         if ((status & chip->ops->req_complete_mask) ==
             chip->ops->req_complete_val)

Makes a heck lot more sense.

There's a typo in the commit message: PM_STATUS_BUSY 

Also the commit message lacks explanation of this change completely:

@@ -690,8 +688,15 @@ static int tpm_ibmvtpm_probe(struct vio_dev *vio_dev,
 		goto init_irq_cleanup;
 	}

+	if (rc)
+		goto init_irq_cleanup;
+
+	if (chip->flags & TPM_CHIP_FLAG_TPM2) {
 		rc = tpm2_get_cc_attrs_tbl(chip);

The last paragraph should be rewritten in imperative form.

Finally, you could simplify the fix by simply changing the type of
tpm_processing_cmd to u8, and just set it to 'true' and 'false',
which will set the first bit.

I guess we'll have to go back to this one then:

We do not want to make a process uninterruptible. That would prevent
killing it.

So it becomes uninterruptible and these error messages go away.

From: Stefan Berger <stefanb@linux.ibm.com>

When rngd is run as root then lots of these types of message will appear
in the kernel log if the TPM has been configure to provide random bytes:

[ 7406.275163] tpm tpm0: tpm_transmit: tpm_recv: error -4

The issue is caused by the following call that is interrupted while
waiting for the TPM's response.

sig = wait_event_interruptible(ibmvtpm->wq,
                               !ibmvtpm->tpm_processing_cmd);

The solution is to use wait_event() instead.

To recreat the issue start rngd like this:

sudo rngd -r /dev/hwrng -t
