I think that points to my patch series. My patch series which provide a
complete separate, API and ABI compliant drop in replacement of /dev/random,
nobody from the gatekeepers cared to even answer. It would not touch the
existing code.

After waiting some time without changing the code (e.g. after Andi Lutomirski
commented), I got no answer at all from the gatekeepers, not even any
indication in what direction I should move if something was not desired in the
patch series.

Thus I continued adding the features that I think are necessary and for which
I received comments from mathematicians. What else should I do?

With the patch set v35 of my patch series, I see all my goals finally
achieved at I expect the code to be stable from here on. The last one was the
hardest: to get rid of all non-cryptographic conditioning operations and yet
retain performance en par or even superior to the existing /dev/random
implementation.

Ciao
Stephan
