Hmm, shouldn't that be /dev/hwrng nowadays?

Actually, I have no clue. In case someone has a suggestion how to find out, if
we have a
working random number generator please tell.

In the end I might just implement a gpg2 call with a timeout otherwise.

I can of course also test on /dev/hwrng, but I fear that this is also not the
final
answer.
