Subject[PATCH 4.19 112/234] random: only wake up writers after zap if threshold was passed
Date
From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

commit a3f9e8910e1584d7725ef7d5ac870920d42d0bb4 upstream.

The only time that we need to wake up /dev/random writers on
RNDCLEARPOOL/RNDZAPPOOL is when we're changing from a value that is
greater than or equal to POOL_MIN_BITS to zero, because if we're
changing from below POOL_MIN_BITS to zero, the writers are already
unblocked.
