Yet another updated entropy patch ...

Sorry for my absence, quite a bit happened to me in real life, but I'm
back with another entropy patch (hopefully ready to finally see a
version make it into CVS). This patch properly implements quality
control, and quality improvement, as well as cleaned up source. The
driver itself can be used with streamio
(settrans /dev/random /hurd/streamio entropy). 

That being said, there appears to be a bug in the latest OpenSSH that
prevents it from opening /dev/random if its a translator (I tried both
my driver, marcus's, and even trying a symlink from /dev/hd1
to /dev/random, all resulting with the same error: PRNG not seeded).
