Subject[PATCH v4 2/3] fdt: add support for rng-seed
Date
Introducing a chosen node, rng-seed, which is an entropy that can be
passed to kernel called very early to increase initial device
randomness. Bootloader should provide this entropy and the value is
read from /chosen/rng-seed in DT.

+This property serves as an entropy to add device randomness. It is parsed
+as a byte array, e.g.
+
+/ {
+ chosen {
+ rng-seed = <0x31 0x95 0x1b 0x3c 0xc9 0xfa 0xb3 ...>;

+
+This random value should be provided by bootloader.
