Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] drivers: libata: add sysctl: 'libata.allow_tpm' for self-encrypted devices
Date
libata tpm functionality, needed for self encrypted devices (OPAL, ...),
is currently disabled per default and needs to be enabled via kernel
command line.

This patch allows enabling it via sysctl.

The implementation might look a bit 'naive', as there aren't any locks
or barriers, etc. As we're dealing just w/ a plain boolean value, that's
only checked when an tpm-related ioctl is called, we're fine w/ that.
