Really, no it's not. It introduces extra mechanism we don't need.

To recap the issue: character devices already have an automatic
mechanism which holds a reference to the struct device while the
character node is open so the default is to release resources on final
put of the struct device.

tpm 2 is special because we have two character device nodes: /dev/tpm0
and /dev/tpmrm0. The way we make this work is that tpm0 is the master
and tpmrm0 the slave, so the slave holds an extra reference on the
master which is put when the slave final put happens. This means that
our resources aren't freed until the final puts of both devices, which
is the model we're using.

The practical consequence of this model is that if you allocate a chip
structure with tpm_chip_alloc() you have to release it again by doing a
put of *both* devices.

However, patch fdc915f7f719 ("tpm: expose spaces via a device link
/dev/tpmrm<n>") contains two bugs: firstly it didn't add a devm action
release for devs and secondly it didn't update the only non-devm user
ibm vtpm to do the double put.

Stefan noticed the latter, so we got the bogus patch 8979b02aaf1d
("tpm: Fix reference count to main device") applied which simply breaks
the master/slave model by not taking a reference on the master for the
slave. I'm not sure why I didn't notice the problem with this fix at
the time, but attention must have been elsewhere.

Subsequently we got ftpm added which copied the ibm vtpm put bug.

So I think 1/2 is the correct fix for all three bugs. I just need to
find a way to verify it.

James
