Hi James,

Could you pass this along to Linus as soon as possible, please?  This
alters a new keyctl function added in the current merge window to allow for
a future extension planned for the next merge window.

Thanks,
David

KEYS: Add placeholder for KDF usage with DH

The values computed during Diffie-Hellman key exchange are often used
in combination with key derivation functions to create cryptographic
keys.  Add a placeholder for a later implementation to configure a
key derivation function that will transform the Diffie-Hellman
result returned by the KEYCTL_DH_COMPUTE command.

[This patch was stripped down from a patch produced by Mat Martineau that
 had a bug in the compat code - so for the moment Stephan's patch simply
 requires that the placeholder argument must be NULL]

Is this likely to go to Linus before -rc2?  If not, we'll need to do things
differently.

It should be ok, I'll see how it goes with Linus.
