SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC v2] random: optionally block in getrandom(2) when the CRNG is uninitialized
I also wanted to ask, are we going to enforce the same strategy on
/dev/urandom ? If we don't because we fear application breakage or
whatever, then there will always be some incentive against migrating
to getrandom(). And if we do it, we know we have to take a reasonable
approach making the change transparent enough for applications. That
would too go in favor of a short timeout.
