Before this commit the kernel could end up with no trusted key sources
even though both of the currently supported backends (TPM and TEE) were
compiled as modules. This manifested in the trusted key type not being
registered at all.

When checking if a CONFIG_… preprocessor variable is defined we only
test for the builtin (=y) case and not the module (=m) case. By using
the IS_REACHABLE() macro we do test for both cases.

* Fixed commit message
* Switched from IS_DEFINED() to IS_REACHABLE()

Fixes: 5d0682be3189 ("KEYS: trusted: Add generic trusted keys framework")
Signed-off-by: Andreas Rammhold <>

Here is the version that was proposed by Ahmad [1] in response to the
feedback received in the "[PATCH v2] KEYS: trusted: fix use as module
when CONFIG_TCG_TPM=m" discussion [2].

I have tested both of the patches on v5.13 and they both fix the problem
I originally encountered.
