Yes, we could try that. I'd like to see tee_shm_alloc_kernel_buf() being
used instead of tee_shm_alloc() in ftpm_tee_probe() and
tee_bnxt_fw_probe(). So it would be great if you could include "tee: add
tee_shm_alloc_kernel_buf()" in your patch set.

My patch set would then shrink a bit. By the way, thanks for reviewing
