The potential risk (with my patch, which is the correct way to
implement this with modern Kerberos libraries) is that it allows any
principal contained within the system keytab to be used, rather than
just the host/hostname one.

However, Kerberos administrators already have to ensure that principals
contained within the system keytab have the same, high, level of trust
ascribed to them, so I don't believe that there is any practical
increase in risk caused by applying this patch.
