Subject: [PATCH 5.0 150/346] random: fix CRNG initialization when random.trust_cpu=1

[ Upstream commit fe6f1a6a8eedc1aa538fee0baa612b6a59639cf8 ]

When the system boots with random.trust_cpu=1 it doesn't initialize the
per-NUMA CRNGs because it skips the rest of the CRNG startup code. This
means that the code from 1e7f583af67b ("random: make /dev/urandom scalable
for silly userspace programs") is not used when random.trust_cpu=1.

crash> dmesg | grep random:
[    0.000000] random: get_random_bytes called from start_kernel+0x94/0x530 with crng_init=0
[    0.314029] random: crng done (trusting CPU's manufacturer)
crash> print crng_node_pool
$6 = (struct crng_state **) 0x0

After adding the missing call to numa_crng_init() the per-NUMA CRNGs are
initialized again:

crash> dmesg | grep random:
[    0.000000] random: get_random_bytes called from start_kernel+0x94/0x530 with crng_init=0
[    0.314031] random: crng done (trusting CPU's manufacturer)
crash> print crng_node_pool
$1 = (struct crng_state **) 0xffff9a915f4014a0

The call to invalidate_batched_entropy() was also missing. This is
important for architectures like PPC and S390 which only have the
arch_get_random_seed_* functions.

Fixes: 39a8883a2b98 ("random: add a config option to trust the CPU's hwrng")
