Subject[PATCH] tpm: Fix TPM 1.2 Shutdown sequence to prevent future TPM operations
From: Vadim Sukhomlinov <>

commit db4d8cb9c9f2af71c4d087817160d866ed572cc9 upstream.

TPM 2.0 Shutdown involve sending TPM2_Shutdown to TPM chip and disabling
future TPM operations. TPM 1.2 behavior was different, future TPM
operations weren't disabled, causing rare issues. This patch ensures
that future TPM operations are disabled.

Fixes: d1bd4a792d39 ("tpm: Issue a TPM2_Shutdown for TPM2 devices.")

This is the backport of the patch referenced above to 4.19 as was done
in Chrome OS. See <> for details. It
presumably applies to some older kernels. NOTE that the problem
itself has existed for a long time, but continuing to backport this
exact solution to super old kernels is out of scope for me. For those
truly interested feel free to reference the past discussion [1].

Reason for backport: mainline has commit a3fbfae82b4c ("tpm: take TPM
chip power gating out of tpm_transmit()") and commit 719b7d81f204
("tpm: introduce tpm_chip_start() and tpm_chip_stop()") and it didn't
seem like a good idea to backport 17 patches to avoid the conflict.
