Yes, the prototype module that I had to use had the same problem as TPM
I think your idea of using tag is much cleaner than using the error
code. I'll probably submit a separate patch for that later on but since
this code is now verified to work on two TPM 1.2 chips (my own and
Scots) and one dTPM2 module, lets keep it that way until this patch
set is pulled at least...
