Subject[PATCH 4.14 191/237] random: avoid checking crng_ready() twice in random_init()
Date
From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

commit 9b29b6b20376ab64e1b043df6301d8a92378e631 upstream.

The current flow expands to:

if (crng_ready())
...
else if (...)
if (!crng_ready())
...

The second crng_ready() call is redundant, but can't so easily be
optimized out by the compiler.

This commit simplifies that to:

if (crng_ready()
...
else if (...)
...

Fixes: 560181c27b58 ("random: move initialization functions out of hot pages")
