We are getting an issue with gnutls, which uses getentropy() to get
random numbers, but glibc doesn't have a hurdish implementation for it.

Would be somebody up for the task which should be quite simple? It is
a matter of writing a getrandom() that opens /dev/random (or urandom
depending on the GRND_RANDOM flag) and read data from it. And then
implement getentropy() as a mere call to getrandom().

(A copyright assignment for glibc will be needed)
