[PATCH v7 13/17] x86/asm: use fallback for random_get_entropy() instead of zero

From: Jason A. Donenfeld
Date: Tue Apr 26 2022 - 05:17:20 EST

In the event that random_get_entropy() can't access a cycle counter or
similar, falling back to returning 0 is suboptimal. Instead, fallback
to calling random_get_entropy_fallback(), which isn't extremely high
precision or guaranteed to be entropic, but is certainly better than
returning zero all the time.

If CONFIG_X86_TSC=n, then it's possible for the kernel to run on systems
without RDTSC, such as 486 and certain 586, so the fallback code is only
required for that case.

As well, fix up both the new function and the get_cycles() function from
which it was derived to use cpu_feature_enabled() rather than
boot_cpu_has(), and use !IS_ENABLED() instead of #ifndef.

Changes v6->v7:
- Adjust commit subject and body to match tip commit style.
- Use !IS_ENABLED() instead of #ifndef.
