Don't do this! Or did you do it just for testing? "Ultimate" is for your
own keys. It makes the key itself valid and all keys signed by that key.
It's the odd one out, as the other trust levels only determine the
validity of other keys signed by that key but don't affect the key itself.

To make a key valid, sign it with a local signature. Or an exportable
signature, your choice.
