I am rather puzzled why the allocate_pool() should succeed and the
subsequent memset() should fail. This does not look like an issue that
is intimately related to TPM2 support, rather an issue in the firmware
that happens to get tickled after the change.
Would you mind trying replacing EFI_LOADER_DATA with
EFI_BOOT_SERVICES_DATA in the allocate_pool() call?
