I guess there is some misunderstanding. Here it's only a single trust
source (TPM *or* TEE) is initialized and only that trust source would
be active at runtime. And trusted_key_ops would be initialized to the
first trust source whose initialization is successful (see check: "if
(!ret)").

I think traversing the trust source list with the initial value being
TPM would be default value.

Sure, will do.

Current intention is to only support a single trust source (TPM or
TEE) at runtime. But in future if there are use-cases then framework
can be extended to support multiple trust sources at runtime as well.
