Merge tag 'fixes-for-linus' of git://

Pull virtio hwrng fix from Rusty Russell:
 "Nasty side-effect of vmalloc'ing modules: their static vars cannot be
  put into scatterlists.  Jens has a check queued for this, so it
  shouldn't happen again.

  We could fix this in virtio_rng, but it's actually far easier to just
  do it in the core"
