I missed this session, but was wondering about an entropy driver.  We're 
integrating an OCaml SSL/TLS into MirageOS, and it's not clear how PV guests 
should go about getting a strong source of entropy from the outside world in a 
reasonably portable way.

VirtIO has a RNG [1] -- has anyone got any interest in a PV protocol for Xen 
that does the same?
