None of that, I cleared the TPM. In fact, it took a while to find a
non-black-magic way to get the IBM BIOS to unhide the "Clear the TPM"

Anyway, the TPM is clean, and I have tried with and without passphrases
(owner and operator), etc. It is either a userspace to kernel
communications bug, or a trousers bug. The PUBEK is there, the kernel
exports it nicely through sysfs, but trousers gets crap instead of the
PUBEK if I ask it to get the PUBEK (and therefore, nothing useful in
trousers works).
