An implementation of random number generators based on `rdrand` and `rdseed` instructions.

The random number generators provided by this crate are fairly slow (the latency for these
instructions is pretty high), but provide high quality random bits. Caveat is: neither AMD’s
nor Intel’s designs are public and therefore are not verifiable for lack of backdoors.

Unless you know what you are doing, use the random number generators provided by the `rand`
crate (such as `EntropyRng`) instead.
