Subject[PATCH 03/29] x86: pageattr-test: remove srandom32 call
Date
pageattr-test calls srandom32() once every test iteration.
But calling srandom32() after late_initcalls is not meaningfull.
Because the random states for random32() is mixed by good random numbers
in late_initcall prandom_reseed().

So this removes the call to srandom32().
