Subject: [RESEND 2/3] hwrng: st: Use real-world device timings for timeout

Samples are documented to be available every 0.667us, so in theory
the 8 sample deep FIFO should take 5.336us to fill.  However, during
thorough testing, it became apparent that filling the FIFO actually
takes closer to 12us.
