Merge tag 'random_for_linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tytso/random
Pull random subsystem patches from Ted Ts'o: "This patch series contains a major revamp of how we collect entropy from interrupts for /dev/random and /dev/urandom. The goal is to addresses weaknesses discussed in the paper "Mining your Ps and Qs: Detection of Widespread Weak Keys in Network Devices", by Nadia Heninger, Zakir Durumeric, Eric Wustrow, J. Alex Halderman, which will be published in the Proceedings of the 21st Usenix Security Symposium, August 2012. (See https://factorable.net for more information and an extended version of the paper.)"

-What: IRQF_SAMPLE_RANDOM
-Check: IRQF_SAMPLE_RANDOM
-When: July 2009
-
-Why: Many of IRQF_SAMPLE_RANDOM users are technically bogus as entropy
- sources in the kernel's current entropy model. To resolve this, every
- input point to the kernel's entropy pool needs to better document the
- type of entropy source it actually is. This will be replaced with
- additional add_*_randomness functions in drivers/char/random.c
