Subject[RFC PATCH 07/41] random: let pool_entropy_delta() take nbits in units of 2^-ENTROPY_SHIFT
Date
Currently pool_entropy_delta() expects its nbits argument to be given in
units of integral bits. Using fractional bits for processing intermediate
entropy counts consistently throughout the code will facilitate upcoming
changes to the entropy accounting logic in add_interrupt_randomness().
Replace pool_entropy_delta()'s nbits argument with nfrac, which used to be
a local variable and is expected to be given in units of 2^-ENTROPY_SHIFT.
Adapt the single caller, credit_entropy_bits(), accordingly.
