Subject: [RFC PATCH 2/3] virtio: rng: only accept delayed early randomness requests

hw_random core can ask for initial randomness after a slight delay after
probe() finishes, and we can contribute to system randomness at that
point.  Tell the hw_random core by setting the HWRNG_DELAY_READ_AT_INIT
flag.
