SubjectRe: [PATCH v9 2/3] fdt: add support for rng-seed

Currently rng-seed read and added in setup_arch() -->
setup_machine_fdt().. -> early_init_dt_scan_chosen(), which is earlier
than parse_early_param() that initializes early_param.

If we want to set it as a boot param, add_bootloader_randomness() can
only be called after parse_early_param(). The seed can't be directly
added to pool after it's read in. We need to store into global
variable and load it later.
If this seems okay then I'll add a patch for this. Thanks
