[PATCH v2 1/4] random: fix try_to_generate_entropy() if no further cpus set

When cpumask_next() the return value is greater than or equal to
nr_cpu_ids, it indicates invalid.

Before commit 596ff4a09b89 ("cpumask: re-introduce constant-sized cpumask
optimizations"), when cpumask_next() returned an invalid cpu, the driver
used the judgment equal to nr_cpu_ids to indicate the invalid cpu, so it
happened to work normally, but this is the wrong approach.

After commit 596ff4a09b89 ("cpumask: re-introduce constant-sized cpumask
optimizations"), these incorrect practices actively buggy, so fix it to
