Subjectrand_initialize() -- bug??
Does anyone know why rand_initialize() is called twice?
chr_dev_init() in drivers/char/mem.c contains a call to rand_initialize(),
and rand_initialize() itself (in drivers/char/random.c) is an __initfunc,
so it is called automagically upon initialization.
It seems like one of these calls is redundant. Am I wrong?
