No, the kernel build should never fail if a config option is not set.
Also the above should be "#ifdef CONFIG_ZCRYPT".

In addition (this isn't quoted unfortunately) the alternative function
in the header file is missing the "inline" attribute. Can you please
add that too?

static inline void ap_bus_cfg_chg(void) { }

If that happens, then we have a build problem that needs to be
fixed. What exactly are you doing to get the ap code linked into the
zcrypt module?
