+(*) A keyring can be created by:
+
+ struct key *keyring_alloc(const char *description, uid_t uid, gid_t gid,
+ const struct cred *cred,
+ key_perm_t perm,
+ unsigned long flags,
+ struct key *dest);
+
+ This creates a keyring with the given attributes and returns it. If dest
+ is not NULL, the new keyring will be linked into the keyring to which it
+ points. No permission checks are made upon the destination keyring.
+
+ Error EDQUOT can be returned if the keyring would overload the quota (pass
+ KEY_ALLOC_NOT_IN_QUOTA in flags if the keyring shouldn't be accounted
+ towards the user's quota). Error ENOMEM can also be returned.
+
+
(*) To check the validity of a key, this function can be called:
int validate_key(struct key *key);
