+ The calling process must have the same ownership as its parent, the
+ keyring must have the same ownership as the calling process, the calling

+ mustn't deny permission, otherwise error EPERM will be returned.

+ Error ENOMEM will be returned if there was insufficient memory to complete

+ The keyring will be replaced next time the parent process leaves the
+ kernel and resumes executing userspace.
