Subject[PATCH 4.19 021/234] random: ignore GRND_RANDOM in getentropy(2)
Date
From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit 48446f198f9adcb499b30332488dfd5bc3f176f6 upstream.

The separate blocking pool is going away. Start by ignoring
GRND_RANDOM in getentropy(2).

This should not materially break any API. Any code that worked
without this change should work at least as well with this change.
