Merge tag 'random_for_linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tytso/random
Pull /dev/random updates from Ted Ts'o: "This adds a memzero_explicit() call which is guaranteed not to be optimized away by GCC. This is important when we are wiping cryptographically sensitive material" * tag 'random_for_linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tytso/random: crypto: memzero_explicit - make sure to clear out sensitive data random: add and use memzero_explicit() for clearing data
