Description of problem:
The kernel devices.txt indicates that the hardware random number generator should be /dev/hwrng. The program /sbin/rngd looks for /dev/hw_random, it should be changed to conform with the LANANA device names.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Type "rngd" as root.
Actual Results: Error that it can't open /dev/hw_random.
Expected Results: Error that it can't open /dev/hwrng because udev does not create /dev/hwrng.
we don't follow lanana but the udev convention
