[PATCH 3/5] random: set up the NUMA crng instances after the CRNG is fully initialized




Until the primary_crng is fully initialized, don't initialize the NUMA
crng nodes.  Otherwise users of /dev/urandom on NUMA systems before
the CRNG is fully initialized can get very bad quality randomness.  Of
course everyone should move to getrandom(2) where this won't be an
issue, but there's a lot of legacy code out there.

Fixes: 1e7f583af67b ("random: make /dev/urandom scalable for silly...")
