request-key - Handle key instantiation callback requests from the kernel
\fB/sbin/request-key \fR<op> <key> <uid> <gid> <threadring> <processring>
<sessionring> [<info>]
This program is invoked by the kernel when the kernel is asked for a key that
it doesn't have immediately available. The kernel creates a partially set up
key and then calls out to this program to instantiate it. It is not intended
to be called directly.
All errors will be logged to the syslog.
.ul 0
Instantiation handler configuration file.
