    LINUX: Revert group changes on keyring failure
    On Linux kernels that support keyrings, when we setpag we try to add
    the PAG to the session keyring and to the supplemental group list.
    Currently, if we fail to add the PAG to the keyring (which may happen
    due to key quotas, or possibly other reasons), we return failure but
    the group list is still modified with the new PAG in it.
    Therefore, if the keyring-based approach fails, the new PAG may still
    be in use, but there are no keyring keys associated with that PAG, so
    the PAG may never get destroyed. This can cause a large number of PAGs
    to accumulate over time, causing performance problems.
    So, change this so that, in the event that keyring installation fails,
    we revert the group list back to what it was before we touched it.
    Also mark all unixusers with the new PAG as expired, in case one got
    created during processing. Thus, the new PAG never gets used.
