Aha I wasn't CC:ed on patch 2 so I didn't see that...

Don't know but I don't think so. The important part is that it's done
before drivers needing good randomness (as opposed to good
entropy). The only Tegra driver I'm aware of that needs this is the
crypto driver (which I patched a bit) and I think that will only come
into play when you do something like set up a VPN tunnel or
similar which will be waaaaay later, so no problem AFAICT.
