Subject: [PATCH v3 4/8] random: Ignore GRND_RANDOM in getentropy(2)
Date: Mon, 23 Dec 2019 00:20:47 -0800
Message-ID: <705c5a091b63cc5da70c99304bb97e0109be0a26.1577088521.git.luto@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1577088521.git.luto@kernel.org>

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.
