crypto: rng - RNGs must return 0 in success case
Change the RNGs to always return 0 in success case. This patch ensures that seqiv.c works with RNGs other than krng. seqiv expects that any return code other than 0 is an error. Without the patch, rfc4106(gcm(aes)) will not work when using a DRBG or an ANSI X9.31 RNG. Signed-off-by: Stephan Mueller <smueller@chronox.de> Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
