Subject[PATCH v5 0/3] enable early printing of hashed pointers
Currently if an attempt is made to print a pointer before there is
enough entropy then '(____ptrval____)' is printed. This makes debugging
stack traces during early boot difficult.

One partial solution to this problem is to use the hw RNG if it is

Patch 1 - Whitespace fixes.
Patch 2 - Fix get_random_bytes_arch()
Patch 3 - Use hw RNG for pointer hashing if available (by default).


v4 -> v5
- Use 'upside-down-xmas-tree' style to declare local variables (Steve)
- Added Reviewed-by tag from Steve (patch 2 and 3).

v3 -> v4
- remove last patch of series (command line option patch)

v2 -> v3
- Add __ro_after_init (suggested by Kees).

v1 -> v2
- Use min_t() instead of min() (thanks checkpatch).
- Add __must_check to function declaration (thanks Steve).
- Use hw RNG by default if available (as originally suggested by Kees).
- Add command line option to use cryptographically insecure hashing.
If debug_early_boot is enabled use hash_long() instead of siphash
(as requested by Steve, and solves original problem for Anna-Maria).
- Added Acked-by tag from Ted (patch 1 and 2)

*** BLURB HERE ***

Tobin C. Harding (3):
random: Fix whitespace pre random-bytes work
random: Return nbytes filled from hw RNG
vsprintf: Use hw RNG for ptr_key
