1618040: CVE-2006-1522 security flaw

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The sys_add_key function in the keyring code in Linux kernel and 2.6.17-rc1, and possibly earlier versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via keyctl requests that add a key to a user key instead of a keyring key, which causes an invalid dereference in the __keyring_search_one function.
