My concern is about this check

The only use of the tee_shm_get_pages() I found is in patch #9:
+ size_t page_num;
+
+ pages = tee_shm_get_pages(shm, &page_num);

So there's no any valid scenario where you should pass NULL to the
function. And I don't understand why you do this check.

Even more, if in future there will be an occasion when function will
be passed with NULL, the error will become hidden by this code.

What about just drop it?
