Did you try enabling CONFIG_CRYPTO_MANAGER_EXTRA_TESTS?  There is now a check
that the driver's ivsize matches the generic implementation's:

        if (ivsize != crypto_skcipher_ivsize(generic_tfm)) {
                pr_err("alg: skcipher: ivsize for %s (%u) doesn't match generic impl (%u)\n",
                       driver, ivsize, crypto_skcipher_ivsize(generic_tfm));
                err = -EINVAL;
                goto out;
        }

For ECB that means the ivsize must be 0.

AFAICS the talitos driver even accesses the IV for ECB, which is wrong; and the
only reason this isn't crashing the self-tests already is that they are confused
by the declared ivsize being nonzero so they don't pass NULL as they should.
