[SLOF] [PATCH v3 00/17] Add vTPM support to SLOF

In this version of the patches I merged some of the patches of the previous
version into a single patch to avoid gcc warnings about unused functions.
I also rearranged the patches so that patch 7 allows Linux to retrieve the
log from SLOF. At this point the log is still empty. Measurements will be
added starting in patch 8. The menu is added in patch 10.
Patch 1 now comes with a Readme providing some background on TPM/vTPM and
installation instructions for libtpms, swtpm, and QEMU with TPM support
(all currently provided via my account on github). The Readme can be found
in lib/libtpm/Readme.

The following series of patches adds TPM support to SLOF.
In particular it adds the following:

- TPM drivers for hardware interface and CRQ interface
- TPM initialization
- TPM logging area and firmware API to transfer it to the OS
  (measurements are visible in sysfs)
- Some measurement code (Static Core Root Of Trust)
- TPM menu (accessible via 't' key during boot if TPM is available)
- Firmware API extensions following Power Firmware Doc
  (to make trusted grub work)

Having a vTPM attached to a VM provides the following benefits:

- enablement of trusted boot; this allow us to eventually extend the chain 
  of trust from the hypervisor to the guests
- enablement of attestation so that one can verify what software is 
  running on a machine
- provides TPM functionality to VMs, which includes a standardized 
  mechanism to store keys and other blobs
  (Linux trusted keys, GNU TLS's TPM extensions)

Necessarily, some of its parts are written in Forth, many are written
in 'C'. The extensions are known to work with QEMU for ppc64 running Linux.

  - Addressed Thomas Huth's comments.
  - Rearranged patches and merged some patches.
  - Followed some of the changes made by K. O'Connor (SeaBIOS).

  - Addressed Nikunj's comments
  - Since last post in August I added 3 more patches to the end of the series
    and one in 13th place.
