I created the bug tracker entry https://bugs.g10code.com/gnupg/issue1701 
holding an updated patch set for the DRBG.

This implementation of the DRBG shares large portions of the DRBG 
implementation now present in the Linux kernel 3.17 RC1. Note, both were 
developed with the same code base.

This DRBG implementation is required for a successful validation of libgcrypt 
according to FIPS 140-2. Although the previous submissions of the DRBG patch 
set seem to have not been noticed, I am asking for a review of the code and 
for an includion of the code into libgcrypt.
