Subject[PATCH v5 2/5] random: Add and use arch_get_rng_seed
Date
Currently, init_std_data contains its own logic for using arch
random sources. This replaces that logic with a generic function
arch_get_rng_seed that allows arch code to supply its own logic.
The default implementation tries arch_get_random_seed_long and
arch_get_random_long individually.

The only functional change here is that random_get_entropy() is used
unconditionally instead of being used only when the arch sources
fail. This may add a tiny amount of security.
