Error -5 is EIO, which is as far as I can tell only used in few places (related to expect flag checks) in the tpm_transmit code path that first reports that error. If this is what causes the problem, then it only tells us that the TPM did not understand the command correctly (it received not enough/too much data). I cannot see any obvious changes between 4.11 and 4.12 that might affect the behavior in that region.

> An idea how to troubleshoot this?

Can you run git bisect on the changes between 4.11 and 4.12, so that we find the offending commit? It is probably sufficient to limit the search to commits that touch something in drivers/char/tpm.
