Subject: [PATCH 0/2] rng-tools: add udev rule for virtio-rng


I didn't find a mailing list for rng-tools, so CC'ing the kernel lists
and the last few committers.

The first patch in this series adds a udev rule to start rngd for
guests that have a virtio-rng device available.

The second patch attempts to add autoconf magic to install the udev
rule in the system dirs.  However, installing as non-root will
obviously fail.  Prefixes are also not honoured.  I don't know of a
better way, and we probably should leave this to distributions.
However, if someone has a better idea on how to expand this, please

Amit Shah (2):
  rngd: add udev rule to source from hwrng if virtio-rng present
  Install udev rules in system-default directory
