Unfortunately TPM enabled in bios + kernel (3.1.0-rc9-00064-g65112dc-dirty)
with the patch applied

[11629.922643] legacy_resume(): pnp_bus_resume+0x0/0x67 returns -19
[11629.922646] PM: Device 00:0a failed to resume: error -19


and there is no "Could not read PCR 0. TPM is not working correctly." message,
so this check doesn't seem to be good enough.
