[PATCH 0/8] random: cleanup of code after removal of nonblocking pool

From: Stephan Müller
Date: Tue Dec 27 2016 - 17:44:27 EST

Hi Ted,

with the removal of the nonblocking_pool, several code paths are now unused
which were only applicable to the nonblocking pool. This patch set removes
these unused code paths.

Also, a code path in the add_interrupt_randomness function that is never used
is removed.

In addition, the FIPS 140-2 continuous self tests are required to process
the output data of the RNG given to a caller. A patch is added to cover this


Stephan Mueller (8):
random: remove stale maybe_reseed_primary_crng
random: remove stale urandom_init_wait
random: trigger random_ready callback upon crng_init == 1
random: remove unused branch in hot code path
random: remove variable limit
random: fix comment for unused random_min_urandom_seed
random: remove noop function call to xfer_secondary_pool
random: move FIPS continuous test to output functions
