Subject: [PATCH 4.4 021/230] KEYS: user: Align the payload buffer

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@...gle.com>

commit cc1780fc42c76c705dd07ea123f1143dc5057630 upstream.

Align the payload of "user" and "logon" keys so that users of the
keyrings service can access it as a struct that requires more than
2-byte alignment.  fscrypt currently does this which results in the read
of fscrypt_key::size being misaligned as it needs 4-byte alignment.

Align to __alignof__(u64) rather than __alignof__(long) since in the
future it's conceivable that people would use structs beginning with
u64, which on some platforms would require more than 'long' alignment.
