The current patch does, you even provided a use case in your last email
(it's do command to get sizing followed by do command with correctly
sized buffer). 

However, if you tie it to O_NONBLOCK, it won't because no-one currently
opens the TPM device non blocking so it's an ABI conformant
discriminator of the uses. Tying to O_NONBLOCK should be simple
because it's in file->f_flags.
