    Linux: Restore aklog -setpag functionality for kernel 2.6.32+
    With kernel 2.6.32 it is now possible for a process to copy its session
    keyring to its parent through the use of the KEYCTL_SESSION_TO_PARENT
    function of the keyctl syscall.
    We can't use this easily from kernel space to cover all calls to
    VIOCSETTOK with the setpag flag - we'd need to make a syscall
    or have keyctl exported.  Instead, a hook is added to ktc_SetToken to
    make it honour the AFS_SETTOK_SETPAG flag, which was ineffective with recent
    This should cover the most common cases (ex: aklog) where this is needed.
    The syscall is coded directly to avoid introducing a dependency on the
    keyutils library or header files which may not be installed everywhere.
