Subject: [PATCH 2/3] hwrng: st: Report correct FIFO size

The values supplied to the 'read random data from FIFO' arithmetic
are not correct.  The value fed in to initialise the iterator
describes the FIFO depth, but then the iterator is treated in
Bytes and subsequently increased by 2 in value for every read
word.  This means only 4 of the 8 available values are being read
during each invocation of .read().

This change increased the device bandwidth by a factor of 2.
