    Update documentation for the hw_random support to be current:
     - Documentation/hw_random.txt has been updated to reflect the
       current code:  it's a framework now, a "core" with a small
       sysfs interface, that hardware-specific drivers plug in to.
       Text specific to Intel hardware is now at the end.
     - Kconfig now references the Documentation/hw_random.txt file
       and better explains what this really does.
    Both chunks of documentation now higlight the fact that the kernel entropy
    pool is maintained by "rngd", and this driver has nothing directly to do with
    that important task.
