[PATCH 5.7 3/6] random: fix circular include dependency on arm64 after addition of percpu.h

commit 1c9df907da83812e4f33b59d3d142c864d9da57f upstream.
Daniel Díaz and Kees Cook independently reported that commit
f227e3ec3b5c ("random32: update the net random state on interrupt and
activity") broke arm64 due to a circular dependency on include files
since the addition of percpu.h in random.h.
The correct fix would definitely be to move all the prandom32 stuff out
of random.h but for backporting, a smaller solution is preferred.
This one replaces linux/percpu.h with asm/percpu.h, and this fixes the
problem on x86_64, arm64, arm, and mips. Note that moving percpu.h
around didn't change anything and that removing it entirely broke
differently. When backporting, such options might still be considered
if this patch fails to help.
[ It turns out that an alternate fix seems to be to just remove the
troublesome <asm/pointer_auth.h> remove from the arm64 <asm/smp.h>
that causes the circular dependency.
But we might as well do the whole belt-and-suspenders thing, and
minimize inclusion in <linux/random.h> too. Either will fix the
problem, and both are good changes. - Linus ]
