I'm a little bit concerned about this, as we really want the rng-seed
value to be wiped, and not kept in memory (even if it's hard to
access).

IIUC, fdt_delprop splices the device tree, so it'll override
"rng-seed" property with whatever device tree entries follow it.
However, if rng-seed is the last property (or if the entries that
follow are smaller than rng-seed), the seed will stay in memory (or
part of it).

fdt_nop_property in v2 would erase it for sure. I don't know if there
is a way to make sure that rng-seed is removed for good while still
deleting the property (maybe modify fdt_splice_ to do a memset(.., 0)
of the moved chunk?).
