Subject: [RFC PATCH 3/3] Revert "virtio: rng: ensure reads happen after successful probe"

This reverts commit ceb5d72a2e27e95bc9570ce259c45b35f0e23462.

This commit was added for -stable so systems with virtio-rng don't
freeze at boot-time.

With the addition of the previous commits that delay the request for
initial randomness after probe() is successful, this is no longer
needed.
