Subject: [PATCH 1/7] KEYS: Increase the payload size when instantiating a key

Increase the size of a payload that can be used to instantiate a key in
add_key() and keyctl_instantiate_key().  This permits huge CIFS SPNEGO blobs to
be passed around.  The limit is raised to 1MB.  If kmalloc() can't allocate a
buffer of sufficient size, vmalloc() will be tried instead.
