Subject[PATCH v3 4/7] KEYS: load key flags and expiry time atomically in key_validate()
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

In key_validate(), load the flags and expiry time once atomically, since
these can change concurrently if key_validate() is called without the
key semaphore held. And we don't want to get inconsistent results if a
variable is referenced multiple times. For example, key->expiry was
referenced in both 'if (key->expiry)' and in 'if (now.tv_sec >=
key->expiry)', making it theoretically possible to see a spurious
EKEYEXPIRED while the expiration time was being removed, i.e. set to 0.
