The following are a set of patches to run the berlios tpm emulator 0.6.1 in a mini-os domain, called vtpm-stubdom. Documentation on how to use this domain is located at stubdom/vtpm/README.

The following are a series of patches that enable this domain and also add significant stability improvements to the entire vTPM subsystem, including the original method of using vtpmd as a process.

Summary of changes:
-Major stability fixes to vtpm manager
-#define VTPM_STUBDOM for vtpm_managerd to allow it to work with vtpm stubdomains.
-hotplug system stability fixes
-add #defines to mini-os to disable drivers like pci and net if you don't want to use them.
-generic tpm frontend and backend devices for mini-os
-libgmp, polarssl, and tpm_emulator 0.6.1 ported to mini-os using the stubdom makefile structure
-vtpm stubdom domain code and README

To look out for in the future:
-Additional features to vtpm-stubdom
-Moving up to latest tpm_emulator
-vtpm manager in its own mini-os domain
