Hi James,

Can you pull these and pass them on to Linus.  There are two sets of
patches here:

 (1) A bunch of core keyrings bug fixes from Eric Biggers.

 (2) Fixing big_key to use safe crypto from Jason A. Donenfeld.

There are more patches to come from Eric, but I haven't reviewed at them
yet, so I haven't included them here.  Thanks to Eric for reviewing the
keyrings code.

The following changes since commit ebb2c2437d8008d46796902ff390653822af6cc4:

  Merge tag 'mmc-v4.14-2' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ulfh/mmc (2017-09-18 08:44:51 -0700)

are available in the git repository at:
