crypto: drbg - do not call drbg_instantiate in healt test

When calling the DRBG health test in FIPS mode, the Jitter RNG is not
yet present in the kernel crypto API which will cause the instantiation
to fail and thus the health test to fail.

As the health tests cover the enforcement of various thresholds, invoke
the functions that are supposed to enforce the thresholds directly.

This patch also saves precious seed.
