2013-09-24KEYS: Expand the capacity of a keyringDavid Howells1-15/+2
Expand the capacity of a keyring to be able to hold a lot more keys by using the previously added associative array implementation. Currently the maximum capacity is: (PAGE_SIZE - sizeof(header)) / sizeof(struct key *) which, on a 64-bit system, is a little more 500. However, since this is being used for the NFS uid mapper, we need more than that. The new implementation gives us effectively unlimited capacity. With some alterations, the keyutils testsuite runs successfully to completion after this patch is applied. The alterations are because (a) keyrings that are simply added to no longer appear ordered and (b) some of the errors have changed a bit. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
2012-05-11KEYS: Permit in-place link replacement in keyring listDavid Howells1-1/+1
Make use of the previous patch that makes the garbage collector perform RCU synchronisation before destroying defunct keys. Key pointers can now be replaced in-place without creating a new keyring payload and replacing the whole thing as the discarded keys will not be destroyed until all currently held RCU read locks are released. If the keyring payload space needs to be expanded or contracted, then a replacement will still need allocating, and the original will still have to be freed by RCU.

2008-11-14KEYS: Disperse linux/key_ui.hDavid Howells1-0/+31
Disperse the bits of linux/key_ui.h as the reason they were put here (keyfs) didn't get in. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>
