original code calls add_early_randomness():

1- everytime a new device is plugged in except if there is an init
function (because if there is an init function it has not been
called and it is needed to be able to use the device)

2- everytime current device is changed, unconditionally
because in this case the init function has already been called.
(in hwrng_init() in set_current_rng())

"new_rng != old_rng" is for 2-, and "!rng->init" is for 1-.

So, yes, it's supposed to be "||".

Thanks,
Laurent
