Maxime, what do you think? Personally I would feel more in having
this in the mach-sunxi/core.c bit, but then again, this is currently
a module and wouldn't be useful to have there. Maxime is far more
knowledgeable to answer that.

Hmmm, I don't understand what you mean here. Could you explain what you
have in mind?
I've thought about it a little, and don't think core.c is a good spot, since the module will have to be loaded, or available there. And that's really early.

So I guess, during probe, controlled by a parameter perhaps, load all 16 bytes into the random pool as Linus suggested?
