Instantiating my own random number generator

Hi there,

I have a kernel module which asks for random numbers using get_random_bytes().

Is there a way I can set this number generator my own seed value, so that I can replay experiments I perform with my module? If I set a seed for the whole system, it would affect other kernel tasks obtaining random numbers through get_random_bytes(), so I guess that is not a good solution.
