SubjectRe: CONFIG_RANDOM option for 1.99.2
Date

a rendom generator placed in the kernel is a thematical error.
i always thought that an OS is an abstracion of the hardware.
please put random generators to where they belong to: to the
application level. put it into some static library.

what's coming next anyway ? /dev/gaussian-distribution ?
/dev/fancy-code-that-controls-my-refridgerator ? /dev/doom-level-10 ?
only because you *can* do it doesn't mean that you *should* do it.
