Unrelated to this issue and only out of curiosity: Since rump instances
are disconnected from the kernel entropy, are they still able to start
with a decent entropy? i.e. do they use the kernel random generator to
initialize their state or such, such that prng_strong() be
unpredictable for these instances?
Thanks for working on this BTW (something I should have said in the
original random revamp thread :)
