Update Information:

This update rebases Fedora 15 and 16 from version 1.9.1 to version 1.9.2,
incorporating a recent security update, and some of the fixes we were
previously backporting, among others.  It also incorporates fixes for null
pointer dereferences which the KDC could make while processing TGS requests
(CVE-2011-1530).

  TGS requests (CVE-2011-1530, #753748)
* Wed Nov 30 2011 Nalin Dahyabhai  1.9.2-3
- correct a bug in the fix for #754001 so that the file creation context is
  consistently reset
* Tue Nov 22 2011 Nalin Dahyabhai  1.9.2-2
- pull patch from trunk so that when computing an HMAC, we don't assume
that
  the HMAC output size is the same as the input key length (RT#6994,
#756139)
* Tue Nov 15 2011 Nalin Dahyabhai  1.9.2-1

caches
  if they were previously set to the default value (#754001)
