8.106. keyutils

Updated keyutils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The keyutils packages provide utilities to control the Linux kernel key management facility and to provide a mechanism by which the kernel calls up to user space to get a key instantiated.

Bug Fix

Previously, the "keyctl show" command incorrectly displayed an abbreviated tree of nested keyrings and therefore the keyring trees that were more than two keyrings deep were not fully displayed. This bug has been fixed and "keyctl show" now displays entire keyring trees as expected.
Moreover, the "keyctl show" command did not expand the field width to show the full decimal key ID. With this update, the key ID field is expanded correctly.
Also, the maximum size of input data for the "keyctl padd" command and other pipe-in commands has been increased to 1MB.
Finally, the "keyctl padd" command as well as other pipe-in commands have been modified not to specially handle zero-value bytes in binary input.
Users of keyutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
