    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.
