    Subject[PATCH] TPM: Fixup pcrs sysfs file
    I'm testing the tpm_tis low level driver with a winbond WPCT200:
    $ cat caps
    Manufacturer: 0x57454300
    TCG version: 1.2
    Firmware version: 2.16

    and noted that tpm_pcr_read for the pcrs sysfile file does not function.
    tpm_tis_recv returned with an error because the expected reply size was
    set to 14 (the request size) and the chip returned 30 bytes.

    The TCG spec says the reply size is supposed to be 30 bytes.

    First, the BUILD_BUG_ON was surely never correct, testing a run time
    value in big endian with that macro is just wrong. I belive the intended
    test was to ensure that the cmd buffer has enough space to store the

    Second, the length input to transmit_cmd is the size of the reply, not
    of the request. It should be 30 for READ_PCR.

    With this change my chip reports all 23 pcrs.
