Subject: [PATCH v5 REPOST 4/6] hw_random: fix unregister race.

From: Rusty Russell <rusty@...tcorp.com.au>

The previous patch added one potential problem: we can still be
reading from a hwrng when it's unregistered.  Add a wait for zero
in the hwrng_unregister path.

v5: reset cleanup_done flag, use compiler barrier to prevent recording.
v4: add cleanup_done flag to insure that cleanup is done
