As far as I can tell, these are two different devices. However, PRNG
shares hardware with the hash engine. Indeed there is a hardware to
connect TRNG and PRNG, but, IMHO, it might be hard to model that
dependency in kernel. To me it seems easier to read TRNG (or
/dev/random) and and write the result to PRNG manually (in software).

I guess so. I expect no problems as long as TRNG_SEED_START is not set
in the HASH_SEED_CONF register.

Added a separate label down below.

I found this pattern in omap-rng.c.

Removed.

I'll wait a little bit more before posting v2.
