Ah, I forgot. So my remark is not quite right :\

It needs to prevent unauthorized stuff from being sent to the TPM, so
if the kernel does not know how to parse the command it shouldn't send
it. It is a matter of security..

I can't remember if we synthezied responses for anything else, it
could make sense to return the usual not supported command response
for this specific thing. But the length error should remain EINVAL I
think..
