Subject: [PATCH 5.9 18/74] efi/arm64: libstub: Deal gracefully with EFI_RNG_PROTOCOL failure

From: Ard Biesheuvel <ardb@...nel.org>

commit d32de9130f6c79533508e2c7879f18997bfbe2a0 upstream.

Currently, on arm64, we abort on any failure from efi_get_random_bytes()
other than EFI_NOT_FOUND when it comes to setting the physical seed for
KASLR, but ignore such failures when obtaining the seed for virtual
KASLR or for early seeding of the kernel's entropy pool via the config
table. This is inconsistent, and may lead to unexpected boot failures.

So let's permit any failure for the physical seed, and simply report
the error code if it does not equal EFI_NOT_FOUND.
