Looking at the contents of linux/keys/trusted.h, it looks like the
wrong decision to move it.  The contents are way too improperly named
and duplicative to be in a standard header.  It's mostly actually TPM
code including a redefinition of the tpm_buf structure, so it doesn't
even seem to be necessary for trusted keys.

If you want to fix this as a bug, I'd move it back again, but long term
I think it should simply be combined with trusted.c because nothing
else can include it sanely anyway.
