As I'll -- at the earliest -- be able to have a look at your entropy work
(or any other Hurd related issues, for that matter) in roughly thirty
hours, I'm forwarding your email to bug-hurd, as requested.  People may
indeed tear your patch to tatters, but if they do, then only to help you,
so don't worry about that.  :-)

Its generating a lot of good entropy (I adapted Linux's /dev/random code) although it still needs more sources, its pulling from just the KB, Mouse, and the Linux driver code. My problem is when the buffer is completely drained (like when I use GPG to generate a key), it fails to refill. Since you've already looked at my code, I was hoping you could spot the mistake and critique the code if you have any time; if you don't, just forward this to the list, but I don't want to be ripped apart for not having it work perfectly at the moment.
