Subject[PATCH 4.14 119/237] random: do not take pool spinlock at boot
Date
From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

commit afba0b80b977b2a8f16234f2acd982f82710ba33 upstream.

Since rand_initialize() is run while interrupts are still off and
nothing else is running, we don't need to repeatedly take and release
the pool spinlock, especially in the RDSEED loop.
