Hi folks,

This patch is a first cut at a driver for virtio-rng. Its not problem free, but 
it works.

* Raw and EGD protocol support
* Rate limiting (simple)

Known problems:
* provokes a bug in the kernels virtio-rng driver that results in data
* Does not reconnect to the host when using a socket to get data (qemu

* Add burst rate limiting
* Reconnection support

With a patch to the guest kernel to fix the virtio-rng driver, I see no 
FIPS-140-2 test failures.

Please review!
