I think there is some confusion going on. tee_shm_register() is a
standard interface that is listed in TEE client API specification as
an alternative approach to tee_shm_alloc(). As I earlier mentioned,
please read through "3.2.4. Shared Memory" in TEE Client API
Specification.

In the initial times, OP-TEE only supported tee_shm_alloc() approach
but with the addition of dynamic shared memory feature it became
possible to support tee_shm_register() as well but we had to add new
capability as TEE_GEN_CAP_REG_MEM in order to maintain OP-TEE
backwards compatibility. It can very well be the same case for AMD-TEE
which currently only supports tee_shm_alloc() approach.

The reason for confusion here seems to be that OP-TEE driver is
providing a way to leverage dynamic shared memory approach in order to
implement tee_shm_alloc() but that doesn't mean at TEE level we should
intermix both approaches via using TEE_SHM_REGISTER to implement
tee_shm_alloc().

Doesn't the following patch sound suitable to be backported to a
stable kernel? It has even less changes compared to your patch as well
:).

-------------------------------------------
Subject: [PATCH] tee: Correct inappropriate usage of TEE_SHM_DMA_BUF flag

Currently TEE_SHM_DMA_BUF flag has been inappropriately used to not
register shared memory allocated for private usage by underlying TEE
driver: OP-TEE in this case. So rather add a new flag as TEE_SHM_PRIV
that can be utilized by underlying TEE drivers for private allocation
and usage of shared memory.

With this corrected, allow tee_shm_alloc_kernel_buf() to allocate a
shared memory region without the backing of dma-buf.
