The TKE field name is the tke_pbl or grid%tke_pbl since WRFV3.3. In previous versions, TKE is grid%tke_myj. grid%tke_1 in solve_em represents another TKE field that you would only invoke when the grid size is very snall (e.g., LES range). The physics calls have been moved out of solve_em.F itself, and are now in module_first_rk_step_part1.F. solve_em calls first_rk_step_part1.
