From: "Jan Beulich" <jbeulich@novell.com>

Add a load option to intel-rng to allow skipping the FWH detection,
necessary in case the BIOS has locked read-only the firmware hub space.
Also prevent any attempt to write to firmware space if it cannot be
write enabled (apparently caused hangs on some systems not having an
FWH and thus also not having a respective RNG).
