I'm largely indifferent to this patch, but I kind of feel like its just churn.
Whats the real advantage in making this change? I grant that it clearly
indicates the type of random number generator we're using at a given call site,
But for those using net_random, you probably don't care too much about
the source of your random bits. If you did really want true random vs.
pseudo-random data, you need to explicitly use the right call. You're previous
patch series did good cleanup on differentiating the different random calls, but
this just seems like its removing what is otherwise useful indirection.
