Subject: [PATCH RFC v2 5/8] security/keys: ensure RNG is seeded before use

Otherwise, we might use bad random numbers which, particularly in the
case of IV generation, could be quite bad. It makes sense to use the
synchronous API here, because we're always in process context (as the
code is littered with GFP_KERNEL and the like).
