The ultimate goal here is FS#17131. I couldn't quite tell the best
approach in some places from looking at the existing code because
there's a little bit of everything.

For example, I define RANDOM_SEED in functions, but use it in
rc.sysinit. Is this ok for variables?

I wanted to keep the status text in rc.sysinit. Is this worthwhile?
Can/Should it go within the function?

Matthew Monaco (4):
  functions: new funcs for random seed handling
  init/shutdown: use {load,store}_random_seed()
  rc.sysinit: load seed before cryptsetup (FS#17131)
  rc.sysinit: store random seed after loading

 functions   |   21 +++++++++++++++++++++
 rc.shutdown |   13 +------------
 rc.sysinit  |   14 ++++++++++----
