TrueRNG and dd

We’ve been getting questions about using the dd command with the TrueRNG so we added some info to the FAQ here.

One thing I wanted to point out is the iflag=fullblock argument on the dd command line.  Without this you may get partially filled blocks if you are using the blocksize (bs=XXX) argument.  This is important if you are expecting an exact number of bytes (such as doing bs=1k count=10 and expecting an exact 10k file).
