Section 2.1.4 says:

   o  actual_mechs SET OF OBJECT IDENTIFIER, -- if returned, caller must
   -- release with GSS_Release_oid_set()

   o  initiator_time_rec INTEGER -- in seconds, or reserved value for
   -- INDEFINITE

   o  acceptor_time_rec INTEGER -- in seconds, or reserved value for
   -- INDEFINITE

   o  cred_usage INTEGER, -- 0=INITIATE-AND-ACCEPT, 1=INITIATE-ONLY,
   -- 2=ACCEPT-ONLY

   o  mech_set SET OF OBJECT IDENTIFIER -- full set of mechanisms
   -- supported by resulting credential.

It should say:

   o  actual_mechs SET OF OBJECT IDENTIFIER, -- full set of mechanisms
   -- supported by resulting credential.  If returned, caller must
   -- release with GSS_Release_oid_set()

   o  initiator_time_rec INTEGER -- in seconds, or reserved value for
   -- INDEFINITE

   o  acceptor_time_rec INTEGER -- in seconds, or reserved value for
   -- INDEFINITE

   Return major_status codes:

Notes:

There appears to be accidentally duplicated text trailing the list of output parameters in section 2.1.4: GSS_Add_cred call (top of page 38).

The parameter "cred_usage" is an input-only parameter and also listed under input parameters, and the parameter "mech_set" is a duplicate of the actual_mechs output parameter. Compare GSS-API C-Bindings document rfc2744, section 5.3. gss_add_cred
