latent_entropy: Mark functions with __latent_entropy
The __latent_entropy gcc attribute can be used only on functions and variables. If it is on a function then the plugin will instrument it for gathering control-flow entropy. If the attribute is on a variable then the plugin will initialize it with random contents. The variable must be an integer, an integer array type or a structure with integer fields. These specific functions have been selected because they are init functions (to help gather boot-time entropy), are called at unpredictable times, or they have variable loops, each of which provide some level of latent entropy.
