Commit Message

Tadeusz Struk Dec. 29, 2021, 5:06 a.m. UTC
When an invalid (non existing) handle is used in a tpm command,
that uses the resource manager interface (/dev/tpmrm0) the resource
manager tries to load it from its internal cache, but fails and
returns an -EINVAL error to the caller. The async handler doesn't
handle these error cases currently and the condition in the poll
handler never returns mask with EPOLLIN set.
The result is that the poll call blocks and the application gets stuck
until the user_read_timer wakes it up after 120 sec.
Make sure that error conditions also contribute to the poll mask
so that a correct error code could passed back to the caller.

I'm not sure what "making sure" means.

What if ret < 0?

You should explain this change in the commit message. Also, consider
adding an inline comment.

As the commit message says tpm_dev_transmit() returns -EINVAL when
the given handle doesn't exist, and the tmprm can not find it.
This is not handled properly and the application gets stuck.
I will add a comment here send a new version.
