Awesome Paul! I think this is a great idea, I experimented a bit with an rtl-sdr based RF noise random generator, but for Python only: https://github.com/michelp/randio Mostly for fun. As you mentioned running it through rng-test would be ideal but I haven't had the time. You've got the right idea making yours work as a kernel-level random device.
