Is it wise to call get_random_bytes once in the init function and never 
thereafter?

This init function may be called during boot time of the kernel at which the 
input_pool may not yet have received sufficient amounts of entropy.

What about registering a callback with add_random_ready_callback and seed 
again when sufficient entropy was collected?
