Merge tag 'keys-devel-20131210' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-fs
Pull misc keyrings fixes from David Howells: "These break down into five sets: - A patch to error handling in the big_key type for huge payloads. If the payload is larger than the "low limit" and the backing store allocation fails, then big_key_instantiate() doesn't clear the payload pointers in the key, assuming them to have been previously cleared - but only one of them is. Unfortunately, the garbage collector still calls big_key_destroy() when sees one of the pointers with a weird value in it (and not NULL) which it then tries to clean up. - Three patches to fix the keyring type: * A patch to fix the hash function to correctly divide keyrings off from keys in the topology of the tree inside the associative array. This is only a problem if searching through nested keyrings - and only if the hash function incorrectly puts the a keyring outside of the 0 branch of the root node. * A patch to fix keyrings' use of the associative array. The __key_link_begin() function initially passes a NULL key pointer to assoc_array_insert() on the basis that it's holding a place in the tree whilst it does more allocation and stuff. This is only a problem when a node contains 16 keys that match at that level and we want to add an also matching 17th. This should easily be manufactured with a keyring full of keyrings (without chucking any other sort of key into the mix) - except for (a) above which makes it on average adding the 65th keyring. * A patch to fix searching down through nested keyrings, where any keyring in the set has more than 16 keyrings and none of the first keyrings we look through has a match (before the tree iteration needs to step to a more distal node). Test in keyutils test suite: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/keyutils.git/commit/?id=8b4ae963ed92523aea18dfbb8cab3f4979e13bd1 - A patch to fix the big_key type's use of a shmem file as its backing store causing audit messages and LSM check failures. This is done by setting S_PRIVATE on the file to avoid LSM checks on the file (access to the shmem file goes through the keyctl() interface and so is gated by the LSM that way). This isn't normally a problem if a key is used by the context that generated it - and it's currently only used by libkrb5. Test in keyutils test suite: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/keyutils.git/commit/?id=d9a53cbab42c293962f2f78f7190253fc73bd32e - A patch to add a generated file to .gitignore. - A patch to fix the alignment of the system certificate data such that it it works on s390. As I understand it, on the S390 arch, symbols must be 2-byte aligned because loading the address discards the least-significant bit" * tag 'keys-devel-20131210' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-fs: KEYS: correct alignment of system_certificate_list content in assembly file Ignore generated file kernel/x509_certificate_list security: shmem: implement kernel private shmem inodes KEYS: Fix searching of nested keyrings KEYS: Fix multiple key add into associative array KEYS: Fix the keyring hash function KEYS: Pre-clear struct key on allocation
