As talked about in the commit message, I think this is a slight
cleanup for non-Cr50 too. Specifically if we end up running through
the TPM_RETRY loop a second time we weren't re-initting "phy->iobuf[0]
= 0;" That means that the 2nd time through the loop we were actually
sending the TPM back the byte that the TPM sent us the first time
through the loop.

Presumably this doesn't matter much, but it still feels nicer not to
be sending the TPM's bytes back to it when we're not really supposed
to.

Also, as mentioned in the commit message, I haven't observed this
fixing any problems. I only came up with it from code inspection
while trying to track something else down.
