Subject[PATCH 1/5] KEYS: sanitize add_key() and keyctl() key payloads
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

Before returning from add_key() or one of the keyctl() commands that
takes in a key payload, zero the temporary buffer that was allocated to
hold the key payload copied from userspace. This may contain sensitive
key material that should not be kept around in the slab caches.

This must not be applied before the patch "KEYS: fix dereferencing NULL
payload with nonzero length".
