Behold the Random Number Generator driver for Octeon!

The first patch adds some port definitions and the octeon_rng platform
device.  The second is the driver.

I am copying AKPM and Linus as there seems to be no hw_random maintainer.

Since Octeon is a mips port, we might want to merge both patches via
Ralf's tree.


David Daney (2):
  MIPS: Octeon:  Add hardware RNG platform device.
  hw_random: Add hardware RNG for Octeon SOCs.
