I've tested your patches on a system with an Intel PTT firmware based TPM2.0 and
the measurements securityfs entry was correctly created and was able to read it:

$ cat /sys/class/tpm/tpm0/device/description
TPM 2.0 Device

$ hexdump /sys/kernel/security/tpm0/binary_bios_measurements | head -n2
0000000 0000 0000 0008 0000 f504 15a0 1810 bf44
0000010 63d0 4fdb b8a4 f278 8dc7 c8aa 0014 0000

So please feel free to add:

I also reviewed the patches and look good to me, I have just one question for
patch #2, but I'll comment there.
