This patch provides several bug fixes to the vtpm hotplug scripts that run in dom0. Previously there were many different cases that would cause them to either crash or hang. Mishandled lock files and improperly used ipc were the culprits.

With this patch the hotplug code uses the vtpmmgrtalk program (included in the last patch) to talk to the vtpm manager and determine if it is running and ready to receive commands.

With this patch and the previous vtpm_manager patch the tradition vtpm implementation in xen is very stable and usable.
