SubjectInstantiating my own random number generator
Date

Hi there,

I have a kernel module which asks for random numbers using
get_random_bytes().

Is there a way I can set this number generator my own seed value, so
that I can replay experiments I perform with my module? If I set a
seed for the whole system, it would affect other kernel tasks
obtaining random numbers through get_random_bytes(), so I guess that
is not a good solution.

TIA,
