urng* at uhub?

The urng driver provides support for various true random number generator (TRNG) devices connected via USB. urng reads raw entropy from the device at a (hardware dependent) interval and stirs it into the system entropy pool with enqueue_randomness(9).

The following devices are supported by this driver:
Araneus Alea I and II
Capable of delivering 100kbit/sec of hardware-generated entropy.
Altus Metrum ChaosKey 1.0
This device is capable of providing entropy at 10Mbit/s.
