Subject[PATCH 4.14 067/237] random: initialize ChaCha20 constants with correct endianness
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

commit a181e0fdb2164268274453b5b291589edbb9b22d upstream.

On big endian CPUs, the ChaCha20-based CRNG is using the wrong
endianness for the ChaCha20 constants.

This doesn't matter cryptographically, but technically it means it's not
ChaCha20 anymore. Fix it to always use the standard constants.
