Subject[PATCH 4.14 140/237] random: do not split fast init input in add_hwgenerator_randomness()
Date
From: Jan Varho <jan.varho@gmail.com>

commit 527a9867af29ff89f278d037db704e0ed50fb666 upstream.

add_hwgenerator_randomness() tries to only use the required amount of input
for fast init, but credits all the entropy, rather than a fraction of
it. Since it's hard to determine how much entropy is left over out of a
non-unformly random sample, either give it all to fast init or credit
it, but don't attempt to do both. In the process, we can clean up the
injection code to no longer need to return a value.
