Commit Message

During a bulk load of kernel keys, an attempt to load a key that is
already on the kernel keyring emits this ndctl error message:
	add_key failed: Invalid argument

and this message in the kernel log:
	encrypted_key: keyword 'load' not allowed when called from .update method

Avoid these error messages by checking the kernel keyring before
trying to load.

Fixes: 9925be9d6793 ("ndctl: add a load-keys command and a modprobe config")
