Subject: [PATCHv3 2/2] extract early boot entropy from the passed cmdline

From: Daniel Micay <danielmicay@...il.com>


Existing Android bootloaders usually pass data useful as early entropy
on the kernel command-line. It may also be the case on other embedded
systems. Sample command-line from a Google Pixel running CopperheadOS:

    console=ttyHSL0,115200,n8 androidboot.console=ttyHSL0
    androidboot.hardware=sailfish user_debug=31 ehci-hcd.park=3
    lpm_levels.sleep_disabled=1 cma=32M@...xffffffff buildvariant=user
    veritykeyid=id:dfcb9db0089e5b3b4090a592415c28e1cb4545ab
    androidboot.bootdevice=624000.ufshc androidboot.verifiedbootstate=yellow
    androidboot.veritymode=enforcing androidboot.keymaster=1
    androidboot.serialno=FA6CE0305299 androidboot.baseband=msm
    mdss_mdp.panel=1:dsi:0:qcom,mdss_dsi_samsung_ea8064tg_1080p_cmd:1:none:cfg:single_dsi
    androidboot.slot_suffix=_b fpsimd.fpsimd_settings=0
    app_setting.use_app_setting=0 kernelflag=0x00000000 debugflag=0x00000000
    androidboot.hardware.revision=PVT radioflag=0x00000000
    radioflagex1=0x00000000 radioflagex2=0x00000000 cpumask=0x00000000
    androidboot.hardware.ddr=4096MB,Hynix,LPDDR4 androidboot.ddrinfo=00000006
    androidboot.ddrsize=4GB androidboot.hardware.color=GRA00
    androidboot.hardware.ufs=32GB,Samsung androidboot.msm.hw_ver_id=268824801
    androidboot.qf.st=2 androidboot.cid=11111111 androidboot.mid=G-2PW4100
    androidboot.bootloader=8996-012001-1704121145
    androidboot.oem_unlock_support=1 androidboot.fp_src=1
    androidboot.htc.hrdump=detected androidboot.ramdump.opt=mem@2g:2g,mem@4g:2g
    androidboot.bootreason=reboot androidboot.ramdump_enable=0 ro
    root=/dev/dm-0 dm="system none ro,0 1 android-verity /dev/sda34"
    rootwait skip_initramfs init=/init androidboot.wificountrycode=US
    androidboot.boottime=1BLL:85,1BLE:669,2BLL:0,2BLE:1777,SW:6,KL:8136

Among other things, it contains a value unique to the device
(androidboot.serialno=FA6CE0305299), unique to the OS builds for the
device variant (veritykeyid=id:dfcb9db0089e5b3b4090a592415c28e1cb4545ab)
and timings from the bootloader stages in milliseconds
(androidboot.boottime=1BLL:85,1BLE:669,2BLL:0,2BLE:1777,SW:6,KL:8136).

v3: add_device_randomness comes before canary initialization, clarified comment.
