KEYS: Move the key config into security/keys/Kconfig

Move the key config into security/keys/Kconfig as there are going to be a lot
of key-related options.

config KEYS
bool "Enable access key retention support"
help
This option provides support for retaining authentication tokens and
access keys in the kernel.
It also includes provision of methods by which such keys might be
associated with a process so that network filesystems, encryption
support and the like can find them.
Furthermore, a special type of key is available that acts as keyring:
a searchable sequence of keys. Each process is equipped with access
to five standard keyrings: UID-specific, GID-specific, session,
process and thread.
If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
config TRUSTED_KEYS
tristate "TRUSTED KEYS"
depends on KEYS && TCG_TPM
select CRYPTO
select CRYPTO_HMAC
select CRYPTO_SHA1
help
This option provides support for creating, sealing, and unsealing
keys in the kernel. Trusted keys are random number symmetric keys,
generated and RSA-sealed by the TPM. The TPM only unseals the keys,
if the boot PCRs and other criteria match. Userspace will only ever
see encrypted blobs.
If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
config ENCRYPTED_KEYS
tristate "ENCRYPTED KEYS"
depends on KEYS
select CRYPTO
select CRYPTO_HMAC
select CRYPTO_AES
select CRYPTO_CBC
select CRYPTO_SHA256
select CRYPTO_RNG
help
This option provides support for create/encrypting/decrypting keys
in the kernel. Encrypted keys are kernel generated random numbers,
which are encrypted/decrypted with a 'master' symmetric key. The
'master' key can be either a trusted-key or user-key type.
Userspace only ever sees/stores encrypted blobs.
If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
config KEYS_DEBUG_PROC_KEYS
bool "Enable the /proc/keys file by which keys may be viewed"
depends on KEYS
help
This option turns on support for the /proc/keys file - through which
can be listed all the keys on the system that are viewable by the
reading process.
The only keys included in the list are those that grant View
permission to the reading process whether or not it possesses them.
Note that LSM security checks are still performed, and may further
filter out keys that the current process is not authorised to view.
Only key attributes are listed here; key payloads are not included in
the resulting table.
If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
