PKCS#7: Make trust determination dependent on contents of trust keyring

This change “PKCS#7: Make trust determination dependent on contents of trust keyring” (commit bda850c) in Linux kernel is authored by David Howells <dhowells [at] redhat.com> on Wed Apr 6 16:14:24 2016 +0100.

Description of "PKCS#7: Make trust determination dependent on contents of trust keyring"

The change “PKCS#7: Make trust determination dependent on contents of trust keyring” introduces changes as follows.

PKCS#7: Make trust determination dependent on contents of trust keyring

Make the determination of the trustworthiness of a key dependent on whether
a key that can verify it is present in the supplied ring of trusted keys
rather than whether or not the verifying key has KEY_FLAG_TRUSTED set.

verify_pkcs7_signature() will return -ENOKEY if the PKCS#7 message trust
chain cannot be verified.
