Subject[PATCH v2.6.34-rc5 07/12] KEYS: Fix an RCU warning in the reading of user keys
Date
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Fix an RCU warning in the reading of user keys:

===================================================
[ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
---------------------------------------------------
security/keys/user_defined.c:202 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/3637:
#0: (&key->sem){+++++.}, at: [<ffffffff811a80ae>] keyctl_read_key+0x9c/0xcf
stack backtrace:
Pid: 3637, comm: keyctl Not tainted 2.6.34-rc5-cachefs #18
Call Trace:
[<ffffffff81051f6c>] lockdep_rcu_dereference+0xaa/0xb2
[<ffffffff811aa55f>] user_read+0x47/0x91
[<ffffffff811a80be>] keyctl_read_key+0xac/0xcf
[<ffffffff811a8a06>] sys_keyctl+0x75/0xb7
