Subject[PATCH tip/core/urgent 1/3] KEYS: Fix an RCU warning
Date
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Fix the following RCU warning:

===================================================
[ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
---------------------------------------------------
security/keys/request_key.c:116 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection!
other info that might help us debug this:

rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
1 lock held by keyctl/5372:
#0: (key_types_sem){.+.+.+}, at: [<ffffffff811a4e3d>] key_type_lookup+0x1c/0x70
stack backtrace:
Pid: 5372, comm: keyctl Not tainted 2.6.34-rc3-cachefs #150
Call Trace:

[<ffffffff81001eeb>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b
This was caused by doing:

[root@andromeda ~]# keyctl newring fred @s
539196288
[root@andromeda ~]# keyctl request2 user a a 539196288
request_key: Required key not available
