    CLOUDSTACK-9395: Add Virtio RNG device to Instances when configured

    By adding a Random Number Generator device to Instances we can prevent
    entropy starvation inside guest.
    
    The default source is /dev/random on the host, but this can be configured
    to another source when present, for example a hardware RNG.

You can merge this pull request into a Git repository by running:

    $ git pull https://github.com/wido/cloudstack virtio-rng
