rnd device is now almost mandatory, as we use ssh/openssh heavily
and openssh does not work without /dev/urandom.
GENERIC kernel for the following platform do not have rnd device
in the kernel config file:
bebox mvme68k newsmips sparc64
my question is:
- are there any specific reason for them to disable it?
- does it make sense to add rnd device to them?
not until they are tested.
testing rnd on sparc64 is on my TODO list.
