Would it help to have a trustzone_ops structure with pointers to
functions if needed, similar to but separate from smp_ops?

Instead of checking for trustzone_enabled() in each place where
we call into smc, we can have a generic implementation that
we call for the disabled case, and provide a vendor specific
version of that struct with functions that call into smp 
where necessary.
