The Clock randomness gathering daemon gathers system randomness from fluctuations between different physical high-frequency clocks in a system. The randomness is tested with FIPS, and if this is successful, fed into the system entropy pool. It is especially useful for systems without real hardware random number generators.

Release Notes: All the autoconf and automake stuff was added, along with a manual page and some more documentation.
Release Notes: A interrupt changed flag was not declared as volatile, so if the code was compiled with optimizations it was likely not to work correctly. This bug has now been fixed.
