This is pretty clearly a big deal. The fact that you can skew HRNGs
just by fiddling with dopant levels is something I would have
suspected, but now that we know, I think need for chip companies
to provide access to the raw HRNG output has become even more obvious.

It is not a question of not trusting the engineers who work on the
hardware. It is a question of not wanting to trust every
single individual in a long supply chain.
