    hwrng: via_rng - Fix asm constraints
    The inline asm to invoke xstore did not specify the constraints
    correctly.  In particular, dx/di should have been marked as output
    registers as well as input as they're modified by xstore.
    Thanks to Mario Holbe for creating this patch and testing it.
