This has only been thoroughly tested on AR9003 and AR9002 hardware. I just
received an AR5008 card to test, but I'm on holidays at the moment, so I'll
only test it after Tuesday.

BTW that `enable` in commit subject is probably misleading, because you're

I'm enabling kthread-based entropy collection on AR5008+ hardware, which
hasn't been enabled before (only AR9003 was supported). Does it make sense
this way?
