Subject: [PATCH v2 0/5] imx-rngc - several small fixes

This is a set of small fixes for the imx-rngc driver.

I tried to clarify the approach for masking/unmasking the interrupt from
the rngc.

The rngc should be set to auto-seed mode, where it creates a new seed
when required.

In the probe function, we should check that the rng type is supported by
this driver.

Thanks for reviewing the patches,


changes in v2:
- remove the contentious devres patch
- add PrasannaKumar's tags

Martin Kaiser (5):
  hwrng: imx-rngc - fix an error path
  hwrng: imx-rngc - use automatic seeding
  hwrng: imx-rngc - (trivial) simplify error prints
  hwrng: imx-rngc - check the rng type
  hwrng: imx-rngc - simplify interrupt mask/unmask
