SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] tpm: don't return -EINVAL if TPM command validation fails

Of course this is what was done, there are two cdevs, one with full
access to the TPM and one that runs through the RM.

The distro/admin gets to choose how to set the up, as is typical.

One of the use models for the RM cdev was to support unpriv access to
that cdev, if the admin chooses to grant access to the /dev/ node.

That work isn't quite complete, as it was envisioned to include kind of
user space controlled command filter/restriction.

Safe unpriv access is explicitly not a design goal of /dev/tpmX.
