gpg: Fix import's repair-key duplicate signature detection.
* g10/packet.h (PKG_siganture): Add field 'help_counter'. * g10/key-check.c (sig_comparison): Take care of HELP_COUNTER. (key_check_all_keysigs): De-duplicate on a per-block base.
The key_check_all_keysigs first does a detection of duplicate
signature. This is done over all signatures at once. The problem
here is for example:
key uid_1 sig_uid_1.1 sig_uid_1.2 subkey_1 sig_sub_1.1 subkey_2 sig_sub_2.1 sig_sub_2.2 (duplicate of sig_sub_1.1)
Now the de-duplication deletes the first signature and keeps the
second. That works in most cases for foreign signature on userids but
in the above constellation the code simply removes sig_sub_1.1 so that
subkey_1 has no binding signature anymore. In a later step during
import the missing binding is detected and subkey_1 is removed because
it is not anymore valid. The sig_sub_2.2 will also be removed later
because it does not check out for subkey_2 (that is as expected).
The fix is to let the de-duplication work only on blocks (ie. within
the signatures of a user id or a subkey). This will not detect all
duplicates but that does not harm because later steps will detect and
In the above case (with this patch applied) the second phase of
key_check_all_keysigs will reorder key signatures and move the
duplicate sig_sub_2.2 directly after sig_sub_1.1. This duplicates the
signature and for cleanness we should kick the de-duplication process
again. This will be done with a followup patch.
