I assume (TPM) trusted key module use worked before the TEE rework? If so,

an appropriate Fixes: Tag would then be in order.

It looks to me like you could now provoke a link error if TEE is a module
and built-in trusted key core tries to link against trusted_key_tee_ops.

One solution for that IS_REACHABLE(). Another is to address the root cause,
which is the inflexible trusted keys Kconfig description:

- Trusted keys despite TEE support can still only be built when TCG_TPM is enabled
- There is no support to have TEE or TPM enabled without using those for
  enabled trusted keys as well
- As you noticed, module build of the backend has issues

I addressed these three issues in a patch[1], a month ago, but have yet to
receive feedback.
