keyctl_*() — Key management function wrappers

Description

The keyctl() system call is a multiplexor for a number of key management functions. These should be called via the wrappers in the libkeyutils library.

The functions can be compiled in by including the keyutils header file:

#include <keyutils.h>

and then telling the linker it should link in the library:

-lkeyutils
