Despite repeated requests, nobody ever came forward with real hardware
to test on, except a few people who turned out to have very old chips
that lacked the RNG.

It'd be nice to have the output of DDB "trace" and "regs", but maybe I
can find the issue by code inspection -- if you crashed _at_ the
XSTORERNG instruction odds are I flipped two of the arguments to the
asm statement or something.

What happens if you boot an amd64 kernel on the Nano machines?
