      Pull documentation format standardization from Jonathan Corbet:
       "This series converts a number of top-level documents to the RST format
        without incorporating them into the Sphinx tree. The hope is to bring
        some uniformity to kernel documentation and, perhaps more importantly,
        have our existing docs serve as an example of the desired formatting
        for those that will be added later.
      
        Mauro has gone through and fixed up a lot of top-level documentation
        files to make them conform to the RST format, but without moving or
        renaming them in any way. This will help when we incorporate the ones
        we want to keep into the Sphinx doctree, but the real purpose is to
        bring a bit of uniformity to our documentation and let the top-level
        docs serve as examples for those writing new ones"

      random: suppress spammy warnings about unseeded randomness · eecabf56
      Theodore Ts'o authored
      
      
      Unfortunately, on some models of some architectures getting a fully
      seeded CRNG is extremely difficult, and so this can result in dmesg
      getting spammed for a surprisingly long time.  This is really bad from
      a security perspective, and so architecture maintainers really need to
      do what they can to get the CRNG seeded sooner after the system is
      booted.  However, users can't do anything actionble to address this,
      and spamming the kernel messages log will only just annoy people.
      
      For developers who want to work on improving this situation,
      CONFIG_WARN_UNSEEDED_RANDOM has been renamed to
      CONFIG_WARN_ALL_UNSEEDED_RANDOM.  By default the kernel will always
      print the first use of unseeded randomness.  This way, hopefully the
      security obsessed will be happy that there is _some_ indication when
      the kernel boots there may be a potential issue with that architecture
      or subarchitecture.  To see all uses of unseeded randomness,
      developers can enable CONFIG_WARN_ALL_UNSEEDED_RANDOM.
