Fix an RCU warning in the reading of user keys:

===================================================
[ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
---------------------------------------------------
security/keys/user_defined.c:202 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection!

other info that might help us debug this:

rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
1 lock held by keyctl/3637:
 #0:  (&key->sem){+++++.}, at: [<ffffffff811a80ae>] keyctl_read_key+0x9c/0xcf

stack backtrace:
Pid: 3637, comm: keyctl Not tainted 2.6.34-rc5-cachefs #18
