Hello everyone,We want to have a "random generator" device be present in Zephyr
setup, which various subsystems then can use (instead of failing). So,
TEST_RANDOM_GENERATOR is a fallback choice which is always available.
For example, it's available in qemu_* boards, which otherwise don't
have a "real" randomgen. That's why you see TEST_RANDOM_GENERATOR in
many networking samples - the only way to make networking samples
accessing to *anyone* is to make sure they run with qemu networking.
Regarding "predictable random number generator", that's interesting
idea for some kinds of testing, but I'm personally not aware of us
using such advanced and cunning test methods in Zephyr.
