TPM 2.0 are higher than TPM 1.x commands so this should be fail-safe.
Using STS3 is unreliable because some chips just report 0xff and not
what the spec says.

TPM TIS 1.2 can report either 0xff or 0x00 for sts3 since that part of register was not defined for this version but only for a later version. So, unless the TIS 1.3 for TPM 2.0 is broken, it should report a bit _pattern_ (not plain 0x00 or 0xff) that you could apply the suggested mask to and check then.
