Subject[PATCH 4.14 094/237] random: remove batched entropy locking
Date
From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

commit 77760fd7f7ae3dfd03668204e708d1568d75447d upstream.

Rather than use spinlocks to protect batched entropy, we can instead
disable interrupts locally, since we're dealing with per-cpu data, and
manage resets with a basic generation counter. At the same time, we
can't quite do this on PREEMPT_RT, where we still want spinlocks-as-
mutexes semantics. So we use a local_lock_t, which provides the right
behavior for each. Because this is a per-cpu lock, that generation
counter is still doing the necessary CPU-to-CPU communication.

This should improve performance a bit. It will also fix the linked splat
that Jonathan received with a PROVE_RAW_LOCK_NESTING=y.
