parentSUNRPC: Remove rpc_xprt::tsh_size (diff)
SUNRPC: Add build option to disable support for insecure enctypes
Enable distributions to enforce the rejection of ancient and insecure Kerberos enctypes in the kernel's RPCSEC_GSS implementation. These are the single-DES encryption types that were deprecated in 2012 by RFC 6649. Enctypes that were deprecated more recently (by RFC 8429) remain fully supported for now because they are still likely to be widely used.

+ Choose Y here to disable the use of deprecated encryption types
+ with the Kerberos version 5 GSS-API mechanism (RFC 1964). The
+ deprecated encryption types include DES-CBC-MD5, DES-CBC-CRC,
+ and DES-CBC-MD4. These types were deprecated by RFC 6649 because
+ they were found to be insecure.
+ N is the default because many sites have deployed KDCs and
+ keytabs that contain only these deprecated encryption types.
+ Choosing Y prevents the use of known-insecure encryption types
+ but might result in compatibility problems.
