parenttmpfs: fix link accounting when a tmpfile is linked in (diff)
kasan: fix random seed generation for tag-based mode
There are two issues with assigning random percpu seeds right now: 1. We use for_each_possible_cpu() to iterate over cpus, but cpumask is not set up yet at the moment of kasan_init(), and thus we only set the seed for cpu #0. 2. A call to get_random_u32() always returns the same number and produces a message in dmesg, since the random subsystem is not yet initialized. Fix 1 by calling kasan_init_tags() after cpumask is set up. Fix 2 by using get_cycles() instead of get_random_u32(). This gives us lower quality random numbers, but it's good enough, as KASAN is meant to be used as a debugging tool and not a mitigation.
