Roberto, removing the following code from init_digests() would be the
equivalent to the prior code, without needing to make any other
changes. ÂLet's keep it simple. ÂDo you want to post the patch with
the change, or should I?

ret = tpm_get_random(chip, digest, TPM_MAX_DIGEST_SIZE);
if (ret < 0)
return ret;
return -EFAULT;

As I can't duplicate the problem, it would need to be tested by others
experiencing the problem.
