Uh, I never claim that it was you who makes this thing broken) I only
notice that you touch this area and bring your attention that hardware
RNGs should be the same way fixed for arc4 too assuming you have
appropriate hardware for tests since you touch it. I don't have such
hardware so ever not examine path hardware RNGs go in this case.

I hope your commit backing out is not final, but will be returned after
secteam@ review with this thing fixed.
