CONFIG_RANDOM_TRUST_BOOTLOADER: Trust the bootloader to initialize Linux's CRNG

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_RANDOM_TRUST_BOOTLOADER:

Help text

Some bootloaders can provide entropy to increase the kernel's initial device randomness. Say Y here to assume the entropy provided by the booloader is trustworthy so it will be added to the kernel's entropy pool. Otherwise, say N here so it will be regarded as device input that only mixes the entropy pool. This can also be configured at boot with "random.trust_bootloader=on/off".
