Subject[PATCH v4 0/4] additional TPM performance improvements
After further discussions with the TCG Device Driver working group (ddwg),
the following changes were made:

* Check for burstcount at least once to confirm the TPM is ready to accept
the data. Similarly, query for the TPM Expect status as sanity check at
the end.

* Make the sleep for status check in the loop less than 5msec.

* Make the sleep in the loop while querying for burstcount less than

Below is the list of patches along with the performance improvements
seen with a TPM 1.2 with an 8 byte burstcount for 1000 extends:

Patch |Improvement(time in sec)

tpm: ignore burstcount to improve tpm_tis | ~41 - ~14
send() performance.

tpm: reduce polling delay in tpm_tis_core | ~14 - ~9

tpm: modify tpm_msleep() function to have | ~9 - ~8
max range

Changelog v4:
* Include Jarkko's feedback on merging two patches reducing sleep
time during polling to TPM.
* Include Jarkko's feedback to clean up the burstcount change
patch and add comment for new #define.

Changelog v3:

* Include Jarkko's feedback to move wait_for_tpm_stat() from
tpm-interface.c to respective driver files tpm_tis_core.c and
* Remove use of module parameter ignore_burst_count and is
now alwaysed ignored in tpm tis send() operation.
* Reduce sleep() time during polling in wait_for_tpm_stat() from
5msec to 1msec for both recv() and send() operation. Version
2 of the patches had it only for send() operation.

Changelog v2:

* Add module parameter to handle ignoring of burst count during
tpm tis send() operation.
* Add improvements over sleep time to reduce delays.

Nayna Jain (4):
tpm: move wait_for_tpm_stat() to respective driver files
tpm: ignore burstcount to improve tpm_tis send() performance
tpm: reduce tpm polling delay in tpm_tis_core
tpm: use tpm_msleep() value as max delay
