HW_RANDOM_VIRTIO is enabled in the default kernel.

Starting the vm like this enables the hwrng:
/gnu/store/ -device virtio-rng-pci
and it works as can be verified by
cat /dev/hwrng

The only missing components from what I can tell is packaging rng-tools
and adding a service to add /dev/hwrng to the entropy pool on boot.
