Subject[PATCH v3 4/5] tpm: reduce tpm_msleep() time in get_burstcount()
Date
Currently, get_burstcount() function sleeps for 5msec in a loop
before retrying for next query to burstcount. However, if it takes
lesser time for TPM to return, this 5msec delay is longer
than necessary.

This patch replaces the tpm_msleep time from 5msec to 1msec.

After this change, performance on a TPM 1.2 with an 8 byte
burstcount for 1000 extends improved from ~10sec to ~9sec.
