No, they haven't. Those switching routines are there to switch from a
lower-priv level to a higher one, i.e. must be privided by software
running in Trustzone secure side. There's such functionality for the
OMAP5, but for imx it's different.

Multiple. You need to make sure that u-boot boots you non-secure
(there's no hyp-mode on the secure side). u-boot needs to be enabled for
that functionality. It hopefully is.
Make sure to use the uimage variant and boot with bootm.
Also set "setenv bootm_boot_mode nonsec" to override a possible wrong
default for this case here. Does this help already?
