With 'OpenSSL 1.0.2h-fips 3 May 2016' and 'chmod 0660 /dev/urandom; chmod 0660 /dev/random;' curl loops infinitely in that function. This might be dependant on the OpenSSL version, but apparently RAND_bytes consumes more entropy than RAND_add adds back, so its not as bad as I initially thought. Still I'd prefer an error message to an infinite loop :)

Do you have any suggested patch to fix this?
