I pushed these commits to the master branch. Please report if you have
any issues. If the master branch continues working for you, as you test
it maybe for other reasons, I'm happy to get tested-by's for them. At
worst they have regressions. I seriously don't think that the code
changes have any major structural issues.

I would guess that Tomas' similar changes for TPM 1.x will follow at
some point. I'm looking forward to change the existing tpm_send()
as one that takes tpm_buf in. That will allow to remove a lot of
cruft code from keyring.

I take no rush to merge these to 'next' but I think it is fine to
have these in the bleeding edge.
