Doc Text:
Feature: This enhancement adds support to the keyutils library (as keyctl_get_persistent()) and the keyctl program (as keyctl get_persistent) for the purpose of getting at the per-UID persistent keyring that is made available by the kernel. Reason: The library change is primarily for the Kerberos libraries to be able to use a keyring for the storage of Kerberos tickets. The keyctl interface is primarily for testing, but can also used by scripts. Result (if any):
