The sys_add_key function in the keyring code in Linux kernel 220.127.116.11
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.
