KEYS: Flag dead keys to induce EKEYREVOKED [try #6]
David Howells [Wed, 2 Sep 2009 08:13:55 +0000 (09:13 +0100)]
Set the KEY_FLAG_DEAD flag on keys for which the type has been removed.  This
causes the key_permission() function to return EKEYREVOKED in response to
various commands.  It does not, however, prevent unlinking or clearing of
keyrings from detaching the key.
