	7751 is not a random-number generator device, but a encryption/
	decryption device.
	i don't know if we can use crypto output as the random number source -
	crypto output is controlled by inputs (plaintext and a key), and
	output is deterministic value given some specific plaintext and a key.

	(some other HiFn chips, like 7951, seem to have random number generator,
	and in that case, i agree they could be used as random number source -
	if you trust HiFn enough)
