With regard to the proposed getrandom syscall patch Brad Smith sent this
comment to me and the mailing list:
"The getentropy() code for Linux within the Unbound tree is old. The
upstream code from the OpenBSD tree has already dealt with using the
new system call 6 months ago. So Wouter just needs to re-sync with
the code from the OpenBSD tree."
Did you consider this? Or would it simply have caused too much
regression testing effort and you preferred a small extension for now?
