    I can see why Linus isn't too excited about this patch:

    o Increased entropy pool sizes are independent. Should be a seperate
    patch.
    o Huge numbers of #ifdef's in the code are Plain Wrong(tm).
    o Replacing current randomization functions with new ones without
    lengthy explanation doesn't make me happy.

    Also, if the patch was inline instead of an attachment, I could easily
    quote it while commenting.


    Not sure whether there are useful things in the patch, but in the
    current form I wouldn't want to take it. And usually I'm less picky
    than Linus.
