Subject[PATCH 06/14] random: separate quantity of bytes extracted and entropy to credit
The account() function serves two purposes: it decides how many
bytes of data we allow ourselves to extract from a pool (and as a
corollary how much to debit that pool's entropy estimate), and
when the extraction is for the purpose of transferring to another
pool it also decides how many bits of estimated entropy we should
credit to the other pool.

Introduce an output parameter to tell the caller the one value
separately from the other. The number of bits to credit is not
used in most callers, so do nothing with it there.

In isolation this would be useless abstraction as the values are
interchangeable, but the next commit will make them differ.
