I have been doing some more debugging - as far as I were able to. These are my
results:

Doing a cold boot I was getting "No TPM chip found" in most cases. I found out
that the TPM will not be found if the bootloader (systemd-boot in my case) has a
timeout value of 10 seconds. This was set for some other tests...

When I remove the timeout and boot directly to the linux kernel, I get that
"2314 TPM-self test error" since it has not finished, yet. The TPM is detected
by IMA and works fine then.

Some more tests showed that any delay before booting the kernel causes the TPM
to not get detected. I tested, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60... seconds. Only in some very
rare cases the TPM got detected.

I wanted to know if the TPM is in an well initialized state at the time of that
error. Since I was not able to get some test/debug kernel patches working I
decided to try kexec. It turned out that the TPM is indeed correctly working and
will be detected just fine by linux after kexec!

Is there anyone having an idea what could be wrong here? I am willing to debug
this but I have really no idea where to start :-(

Best regards
Michael
