I'm the maintainer of record for random.c, which is different. Not long
ago, I sent in a patch to add myself to the HWRNG piece because people
were regularly sending me things to review and it was marked as orphan.
So, Herbert: we should probably resolve this confusion in MAINTAINERS.
We should add one or both of our names to HWRNG and, if necessary, add a
comment to RANDOM pointing to HWRNG. I have an eventual goal to make
random.c sample the hwrngs without a trip through userspace, so this may
get even more confusing.
