Subject[PATCH 4.19 131/234] random: make random_get_entropy() return an unsigned long
Date
From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

commit b0c3e796f24b588b862b61ce235d3c9417dc8983 upstream.

Some implementations were returning type `unsigned long`, while others
that fell back to get_cycles() were implicitly returning a `cycles_t` or
an untyped constant int literal. That makes for weird and confusing
code, and basically all code in the kernel already handled it like it
was an `unsigned long`. I recently tried to handle it as the largest
type it could be, a `cycles_t`, but doing so doesn't really help with
much.

Instead let's just make random_get_entropy() return an unsigned long all
the time. This also matches the commonly used `arch_get_random_long()`
function, so now RDRAND and RDTSC return the same sized integer, which
means one can fallback to the other more gracefully.
