Subject[PATCH 4.20 018/183] KEYS: allow reaching the keys quotas exactly
Date
4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

commit a08bf91ce28ed3ae7b6fef35d843fef8dc8c2cd9 upstream.

If the sysctl 'kernel.keys.maxkeys' is set to some number n, then
actually users can only add up to 'n - 1' keys. Likewise for
'kernel.keys.maxbytes' and the root_* versions of these sysctls. But
these sysctls are apparently supposed to be *maximums*, as per their
names and all documentation I could find -- the keyrings(7) man page,
Documentation/security/keys/core.rst, and all the mentions of EDQUOT
meaning that the key quota was *exceeded* (as opposed to reached).

Thus, fix the code to allow reaching the quotas exactly.

Fixes: 0b77f5bfb45c ("keys: make the keyring quotas controllable through /proc/sys")
