random: remove unneeded hash of a portion of the entropy pool
We previously extracted a portion of the entropy pool in mix_pool_bytes() and hashed it in to avoid racing CPU's from returning duplicate random values. Now that we are using a spinlock to prevent this from happening, this is no longer necessary. So remove it, to simplify the code a bit.
