More testing, either before or after merging, would be greatly
appreciated. One of the challenges is that there are a lot of systems
out there with different amounts of boot entropy available. So this
pull request was needed to help deal with issues on crazy big machines
(CONFIG_NUMA) and crazy small laptops (old/small chromebooks
repurposed to support Ubuntu and small ARM systems) --- neither of
which I had access to when I was putting together the fixes to the
random driver.

So any feedback before 4.17 gets released would be really helpful!
