Hm, so I wonder if either keyrings are not working, or we think you
don't have them. If you have the 'configure' output or the config.log
from when you compiled the kernel module, what does it say about linux
kernel keyring support, and the surrounding messages?

And if you have or can get libkeyutils or the keyctl program, it would
be helpful to know if 'keyctl session' works, and makes PAGs work as you
would expect (or the equivalent keyctl_join_session_keyring(NULL)).

And as a sanity check, the large-numbered group does go away when you su
to another user, yes?
