keys: increase the payload size when instantiating a key
Increase the size of a payload that can be used to instantiate a key in add_key() and keyctl_instantiate_key(). This permits huge CIFS SPNEGO blobs to be passed around. The limit is raised to 1MB. If kmalloc() can't allocate a buffer of sufficient size, vmalloc() will be tried instead.
