Hi Sean,

Mostly looks good, have few minor comments.

Use readl_poll_timeout_atomic's return value or -EIO instead of
!!ready. This will simplify mtk_rng_read.

Is this really necessary? Better to choose proper timeout than
providing this warning message. In rare cases if the timeout could
occur due to some reason (may be a hardware fault) print appropriate
warning message.

Set retavl to mtk_rng_wait_ready and return retval.
