Brought to krbdev...
The kernel implementation of rpcsec_gss used for NFSv4 requires context
information be negotiated in user-land and then passed down for use in the
kernel. gss_export_context() exports the context as an opaque object which
cannot be used for this purpose. We are proposing three new APIs. One is
to restrict the encryption types negotiated in user-land to the set that the
kernel can use. The other two are to export context information into a
usable structure, and then free that structure.
Comments, suggestions, welcome.
