The following three patches will enable HVM domains with a TPM TIS
driver to access TPM functionality provided by the virtual TPM. It is
only necessary to provide the usual 'vtpm = [...]' line in the VM
configuration file. The implementation is based on specs by the trusted

The TIS device model requires some modification to the virtual TPM in
the repository to offer an additional channel (i.e., local socket) for
sending TPM commands to. This still needs to be done.
