* rngd.h, rngd.c, rngd_linux.c, Let the user
set the fill watermark explicitly, using the new -W
command line option. This gets rid of RNDGETPOOL
usage, and of a hardcoded (yuck) setting of 50%.
This change will make rngd work right with 2.6 kernels.

"updated" to FIPS140-2 standard, it has a bit more
strict constraints on randomness.. about one out of
1000 blocks read from /dev/urandom causes a failure.
also a bugfix:
checks for EINTR in xread (maybe not necessary with
i810 driver?)
