From
Subject[RFC/PATCH 1/3] of: Add early randomness hooks
Date
Until randomness is added to the kernel's pools, random
numbers returned may not be truly 'random'. Randomness comes
from a variety of sources in the kernel but much of the
randomness comes from device related initialization. This
means that any random numbers that are needed before drivers
are initialized (e.g. stack canary) may not be truely random.
Fix this by build a list of functions that can be used to add
randomness to the kernel's pools very early. The functions are
tied to particular compatible strings of devicetree nodes. The
flattened devicetree is scanned and if the node is present the
function is called. Note that this must happen on the flattened
devicetree to ensure the randomness gets added to the pool
early enough to make a difference.
