enable reset of rng with user-provided initial counter
Description of problem:
The ansi cprng code currently allows resetting of the rng with a user-supplied key and seed, but for fips cavs testing (and potentially for actual users), we need to be able to pass in an initial counter (DT) value as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attached is a patch that I *think* should give us everything we need, but I only started looking at this code earlier today, so I could be way off base and/or missing something else somewhere...
Thanks jarod! I've sent this upstream and copied you. When it gets pulled in, I'll post it for RHEL5
