Subject[PATCH 3.18 123/145] s390: make setup_randomness work
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

commit da8fd820f389a0e29080b14c61bf5cf1d8ef5ca1 upstream.

Commit bcfcbb6bae64 ("s390: add system information as device
randomness") intended to add some virtual machine specific information
to the randomness pool.

Unfortunately it uses the page allocator before it is ready to use. In
result the page allocator always returns NULL and the setup_randomness
function never adds anything to the randomness pool.

To fix this use memblock_alloc and memblock_free instead.
