The machine I see it on for every ssh connect (or similar) lists sd0 as
only active entropy source with serious amounts of entropy (maybe the
cpus will provide more if beaten heavily). Besides enabling the network
interface (which I am not sure I would want to do), what else can I do
to avoid the problem (and spamming of my console)?

Can the message point at rndctl(9) and -l at least (and drop the hex number
probably nobody cares about)? Or is there something wrong in the code
that makes it trigger way too often?
