Re: [PATCH -v2 09/26] infiniband: rename random32() to prandom_u32()

I'm asking: why are you bothering with renaming the functions? This seems like a needless change, _unless_ there are really non-pseudo-random services being added.

Are there other "non pseudo-random" services that warrant this rename?
I couldn't understand your question very well. So I'm not sure this is
the expected answer:
I only renamed pseudo-random functions defined in lib/random32.c in the
commit 496f2f93 ("random32: rename random32 to prandom").
This patch series aims for finishing the naming transition and removing
the backword compatibility wrapper macros. Non pseudo-random functions
are unrelated to this patch series.
