      crypto: algif_rng - add random number generator support · 5afdfd22
      Stephan Mueller authored
      This patch adds the random number generator support for AF_ALG.
      A random number generator's purpose is to generate data without
      requiring the caller to provide any data. Therefore, the AF_ALG
      interface handler for RNGs only implements a callback handler for
      The following parameters provided with a recvmsg are processed by the
      RNG callback handler:
      	* sock - to resolve the RNG context data structure accessing the
      	  RNG instance private to the socket
      	* len - this parameter allows userspace callers to specify how
      	  many random bytes the RNG shall produce and return. As the
      	  kernel context for the RNG allocates a buffer of 128 bytes to
      	  store random numbers before copying them to userspace, the len
      	  parameter is checked that it is not larger than 128. If a
      	  caller wants more random numbers, a new request for recvmsg
      	  shall be made.
      The size of 128 bytes is chose because of the following considerations:
      	* to increase the memory footprint of the kernel too much (note,
      	  that would be 128 bytes per open socket)
      	* 128 is divisible by any typical cryptographic block size an
      	  RNG may have
      	* A request for random numbers typically only shall supply small
      	  amount of data like for keys or IVs that should only require
      	  one invocation of the recvmsg function.
      Note, during instantiation of the RNG, the code checks whether the RNG
      implementation requires seeding. If so, the RNG is seeded with output
      from get_random_bytes.
      A fully working example using all aspects of the RNG interface is

       "kernel: Provide READ_ONCE and ASSIGN_ONCE
        As discussed on LKML http://marc.info/?i=54611D86.4040306%40de.ibm.com
        ACCESS_ONCE might fail with specific compilers for non-scalar
        Here is a set of patches to tackle that problem.
        The first patch introduce READ_ONCE and ASSIGN_ONCE.  If the data
        structure is larger than the machine word size memcpy is used and a
        warning is emitted.  The next patches fix up several in-tree users of
        ACCESS_ONCE on non-scalar types.
        This does not yet contain a patch that forces ACCESS_ONCE to work only
        on scalar types.  This is targetted for the next merge window as Linux
        next already contains new offenders regarding ACCESS_ONCE vs.
        non-scalar types"
