Subject[PATCH 02/37] KEYS: Check starting keyring as part of search
Date
Check the starting keyring as part of the search to (a) see if that is what
we're searching for, and (b) to check it is still valid for searching.

The scenario: User in process A does things that cause things to be
created in its process session keyring. The user then does an su to
another user and starts a new process, B. The two processes now
share the same process session keyring.

Process B does an NFS access which results in an upcall to gssd.
When gssd attempts to instantiate the context key (to be linked
into the process session keyring), it is denied access even though it
has an authorization key.

The order of calls is:

keyctl_instantiate_key()
lookup_user_key() (the default: case)
search_process_keyrings(current)
search_process_keyrings(rka->context) (recursive call)
keyring_search_aux()

keyring_search_aux() verifies the keys and keyrings underneath the
top-level keyring it is given, but that top-level keyring is neither
fully validated nor checked to see if it is the thing being searched for.

This patch changes keyring_search_aux() to:
1) do more validation on the top keyring it is given and
2) check whether that top-level keyring is the thing being searched for
