Description Jarod Wilson 2008-11-05 15:15:16 EST
Created attachment 322640 [details]
trivial patch for EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(DSA_verify);

Description of problem:
In order to pass FIPS CAVS testing and rely upon our kernel module signing infrastructure, we need to be able to certify our DSA verification implementation in the kernel. To do so, the DSA_verify function needs to be exported, so that the test infrastructure bits can use it.
