  s390x: Mark archrandom.h functions __must_check (2020-01-25 12:18:51 -0500)

Change /dev/random so that it uses the CRNG and only blocking if the
CRNG hasn't initialized, instead of the old blocking pool.  Also clean
up archrandom.h, and some other miscellaneous cleanups.

Andy Lutomirski (8):
      random: Don't wake crng_init_wait when crng_init == 1
      random: Add a urandom_read_nowait() for random APIs that don't warn
      random: add GRND_INSECURE to return best-effort non-cryptographic bytes
      random: ignore GRND_RANDOM in getentropy(2)
      random: make /dev/random be almost like /dev/urandom
      random: remove the blocking pool
      random: delete code to pull data into pools
      random: remove kernel.random.read_wakeup_threshold

      s390: Remove arch_has_random, arch_has_random_seed

      random: remove unnecessary unlikely()
      random: convert to ENTROPY_BITS for better code readability
