Subject: [3.16 stable PATCH 1/1] virtio-rng: fix multi-device startup

This is a 3.16-only patch.  The linux.git fix is
5c06273401f2eb7b290cadbae18ee00f8f65e893, which fixes this issue in a
different way.

Amos reported using multiple virtio-rng devices cause boot to freeze
even after the recent fixes.  We need the probe_done test per device
rather than just once for the driver.
