Refer to e13cd21ffd50 ("tpm: Wrap the buffer from the caller to
tpm_buf in tpm_send()") for the details.
Yes, I get that, but to my mind that calls for moving the
tpm_init/destroy_buf into the callers of tpm_send (which, for the most
part, already exist), which means there's no need to separate the buf
and data lifetimes.
Sumit has been working on a patchset that does this. His patchset
converts both the asymmetric keys and trusted keys code to using the
tpm_buf manipulation functions.
