Subject: [PATCH v6 kspp-next 06/22] x86/boot: Allow a "silent" kaslr random byte fetch

From: Kees Cook <keescook@...omium.org>

Under earlyprintk, each RNG call produces a debug report line. When
shuffling hundreds of functions, this is not useful information (each
line is identical and tells us nothing new). Instead, allow for a NULL
"purpose" to suppress the debug reporting.
