Subject[PATCH v5 3/5] x86,random: Add an x86 implementation of arch_get_rng_seed
Date
This does the same thing as the generic implementation, except
that it logs how many bits of each type it collected. I want to
know whether the initial seeding is working and, if so, whether
the RNG is fast enough.

(I know that hpa assures me that the hardware RNG is more than
fast enough, but I'd still like a direct way to verify this.)

Arguably, arch_get_random_seed could be removed now: I'm having some
trouble imagining a sensible non-architecture-specific use of it
that wouldn't be better served by arch_get_rng_seed.
