"updated" to FIPS140-2 standard, it has a bit more
strict constraints on randomness.. about one out of
1000 blocks read from /dev/urandom causes a failure.

also some bugfixes
1) checks for EINTR in xread (maybe not necessary with
i810 driver?)
2) does not do write in random_add_entropy because the
ioctl does it

    Thanks much, applied to newly-renamed 'rng-tools' cvs module.
