Subject[PATCH 0/22] /dev/random: Assorted fixes and cleanups
This is a collection of fixes and cleanups for the Linux /dev/random
driver including:

- more robust/correct entropy accounting and reseed logic
- starvation avoidance for simultaneous /dev/random and /dev/urandom
- remove entropy batching
- wakeup bug fix
- remove various legacy code
- remove i386isms

I've broken this into a bunch of very simple bits, so I'm afraid the
patch count is rather high by non-gregkh standards.

These patches have been tested by various people since pre-2.6.0 and
have been in my -tiny tree since its inception. Andrew, please queue
these in -mm for wider testing/review.
