OK. Can you suggest some possible kernel users then? I wouldn't have
expected this system to have any use at all of in-kernel random bits.
It doesn't use cgd's or ipsec. (Those would be obvious candidate users
It does use nfs, but just a single nfs mount (/home).
It has IPv6 and IPv4 configured (on pcn and wm interfaces - that is,
on virtualbox's emulation of those things). I mention this as the
initial kernel cprng message seems to be about the time the network
is being configured by rc.d/network (that's just an eyeball guess).
Aside from that, it is very boring (it is still running a generic
kernel, I am hoping not to need to keep running virtualbox for
long enough that building a kernel just for it would be justified).
