Subject: [PATCH v2 00/10] Improvements for random.h/archrandom.h
Date: Wed,  6 Nov 2019 15:12:58 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191106141308.30535-1-rth@twiddle.net> (raw)

During patch review for an addition of archrandom.h for arm64, it was
suggeted that the arch_random_get_* functions should be marked __must_check.
Which does sound like a good idea, since the by-reference integer output
may be uninitialized when the boolean result is false.

In addition, it turns out that arch_has_random() and arch_has_random_seed()
are not used, and not easy to support for arm64.  Rather than cobble
something together that would not be testable, remove the interfaces
against some future accidental use.

In addition, I noticed a few other minor inconsistencies between the
different architectures, e.g. powerpc isn't using bool.

Change since v1:
  * Remove arch_has_random, arch_has_random_seed.
