Subject: CVE-2015-3218: backend: Handle invalid object paths in
 RegisterAuthenticationAgent
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Properly propagate the error, otherwise we dereference a `NULL`
pointer.  This is a local, authenticated DoS.

`RegisterAuthenticationAgentWithOptions` and
`UnregisterAuthentication` have been validated to not need changes for
this.
