Message-ID: <20191001021445.Horde.vJlgHZzdj07RiCXGaQ6yOqT@www.vfemail.net> (raw)

Why not get entropy from the white noise that can be obtained from any  
attached ADC? Audio cards, some SBCs, and microcontrollers all have  
ADCs.
Not that I'm familiar with when the kernel first needs entropy or an  
expert in the field.

Thanks
