Subject: CVE-2009-0031 kernel: local denial of service in
 keyctl_join_session_keyring

According to upstream commit 0d54ee1c7850a954026deec4cd4885f331da35cc 
"security: introduce missing kfree" there is a missing kfree in 
keyctl_join_session_keyring.

It looks like a local user could eventually cause a DoS by using up kernel 
memory, so I assigned this CVE-2009-0031.

Thanks, Mark
