Subject[PATCH v2 00/03]: khwrngd
Here is version 2 of the khwrngd patch set.

The first patch is unchanged.

The second one now introduces an initial derating factor,
as suggested by hpa. It's called derating_current to simplify
patch#3, and the thread creation has moved into hwrng_init,
because it may later depend on the hwrng's derating property.

The third patch only introduces the derating member to
struct hwrng and provides a configurable default.

I could imagine to further add a derating_extra parameter
for conservative admins, in order to diminish the entropy
estimation given from the driver author even more. OTOH
too many knobs might cause confusion.
