char device i810_rng


i have a modules that isn't loading right. the i810_rng. I google it and found out its a intel random number generator. my question is, how important is this. should i blacklist this or try to get this to work.

this is what is say:
Code:
 The i810_rng device driver is software that makes use of a
+   special hardware feature on the Intel i8xx-based chipsets,
+   a Random Number Generator (RNG).
+
+   In order to make effective use of this device driver, you
+   should download the support software as well.  Download the
+   latest version of the "intel-rng-tools" package from the
+   i810_rng driver's official Web site:
+
+      http://sourceforge.net/projects/gkernel/
