[PATCH] hwrng: Pass entropy to add_hwgenerator_randomness() in bits, not bytes

From: Stephen Boyd
Date: Fri Jul 25 2014 - 18:19:26 EST

rng_get_data() returns the number of bytes read from the hardware.
The entropy argument to add_hwgenerator_randomness() is passed
directly to credit_entropy_bits() so we should be passing the
number of bits, not bytes here.
