On the Logic PD Torpedo, I was able to read from /dev/hwrng and
/dev/random 10x without issue
I have installed rng-tools and I have sshd running and some other
stuff that might get in the way if I do an rmmod too much, but I
removed and modprobed the omap-rng 3x and never saw an issue reading
either /dev/hwrng or /dev/random.

I have been meaning to test this on the AM3517 and haven't gotten to
it yet, but I assume you've only tested omap3630, is that true?
