Subject[patch 13/58] virtio-rng: Remove false BUG for spurious callbacks
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com>

upstream commit: e5b89542ea18020961882228c26db3ba87f6e608

The virtio-rng drivers checks for spurious callbacks. Since
callbacks can be implemented via shared interrupts (e.g. PCI) this
could lead to guest kernel oopses with lots of virtio devices.
