What I see in the original code is that when
tpm_cmd_ready() fails it's jumps to 'out' label and trying to do tpm_go_idle()
but instead it should just undoing the locality, so both cmd_read and go idle had a wrong
jump. I see both should be fixed.

Earlier version was better than this and would have been fine
