Subject: [PATCH v2] tpm: ibmvtpm: Avoid error message when process gets signal while waiting
Date: Tue,  3 Aug 2021 16:26:22 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210803202622.1537040-1-stefanb@linux.vnet.ibm.com> (raw)

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 configured 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 extend tpm_ibmvtpm_status() to return
TPM_STATUS_BUSY for as long as the vTPM is busy. Since the loop requires
the TPM's timeouts, get them now using tpm_get_timeouts() after setting
the TPM2 version flag on the chip.

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 resolved issue start rngd like this:

sudo rngd -r /dev/hwrng -t
sudo rngd -r /dev/tpm0 -t
