Subject: [PATCH 6/7] random: Delete code to pull data into pools
Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2019 18:11:41 -0700
Message-ID: <5df8443b2987ed344e0b2e311743ace634a42d12.1567126741.git.luto@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1567126741.git.luto@kernel.org>

There is no pool that pulls, so it was just dead code.
