* src/utils/ecryptfs-setup-private: LP: #1328689
- fix a long standing bug, where setting up an encrypted private,
encrypted home, or migrating to an encrypted home did not work
correctly over ssh sessions
- the root cause of the bug is some complexity in the handling of
user keyrings and session keyrings
- the long term solution would be to correctly use session keyrings
- the short term solution is to continue linking user and session

[ Tyler Hicks ]
* Remove unnecessary dependencies in the Debian packaging (LP: #1548975)
- debian/control: Remove opencryptoki from ecryptfs-utils
Suggests and libopencryptoki-dev from libecryptfs-dev Depends as
openCryptoki is not a dependency of eCryptfs.
- debian/rules: Remove openCryptoki related logic since it was not being
used and is no longer needed
- debian/control: Remove libtspi-dev from libecryptfs-dev Depends since
--disable-tspi is passed to the configure script
- debian/control: Remove libpkcs11-helper1-dev from libecryptfs-dev
Depends since --disable-pkcs11-helper is passed to the configure script
- debian/control: Remove libgpg-error-dev and libgpgme11-dev from
libecryptfs-dev Depends since --disable-gpg is passed to the configure
- debian/control: Remove libgcrypt11-dev from Build-Depends and
libecryptfs-dev Depends since --enable-nss is passed to the configure
script to use NSS instead of Libgcrypt
- debian/control: Remove libkeyutils-dev and libpam0g-dev from
libecryptfs-dev Depends since these are build-time dependencies and not
run-time dependencies

[ Colin Ian King ]
* src/daemon/main.c:
- Static analysis with Clang's scan-build shows that we can potentially
overflow the input buffer if the input is equal or more than the buffer
size.  Need to guard against this by:
1. Only reading in input_size - 1  chars
2. Checking earlier on to see if input_size is value to insure that we
read in at least 1 char
[ Tyler Hicks ]
* src/utils/mount.ecryptfs_private.c:
- Refuse to mount over non-standard filesystems. Mounting over
certain types filesystems is a red flag that the user is doing
something devious, such as mounting over the /proc/self symlink
target with malicious content in order to confuse programs that may
attempt to parse those files. (LP: #1530566)
