* struct hwrng - Hardware Random Number Generator driver
* @name: Unique RNG name.
* @init: Initialization callback (can be NULL).
* @cleanup: Cleanup callback (can be NULL).
* @data_present: Callback to determine if data is available
* on the RNG. If NULL, it is assumed that
* there is always data available. *OBSOLETE*
* @data_read: Read data from the RNG device.
* Returns the number of lower random bytes in "data".
* Must not be NULL. *OBSOLETE*
* @read: New API. drivers can fill up to max bytes of data
* into the buffer. The buffer is aligned for any type.
* @priv: Private data, for use by the RNG driver.
* @quality: Estimation of true entropy in RNG's bitstream
* (per mill).
