Subject[PATCH] intel-rng: Undo mess made by an 80 column extremist
The intel-rng printed a nice well formatted message when the port was
disabled. Someone then came along and blindly trashed it by screwing up a
trim down to 80 columns.

Put it back into the right format and keep the overlong lines as the
result is also MUCH easier to read in this specific case.
