Sorry, my mistake. Recent kernel changes may be the trigger of this
problem but would not be the root cause. If there is any process
blocking waiting for entropy then that's the real issue. Because they
are blocking waiting indefinitely for something that might theoretically
take forever. And that's bad software design.

I guess therefore we don't need to find out which kernel version made it
worse recently. We need to find out which process is actually blocking
waiting for entropy. If anyone can figure that out from the logs, or by
looking at open files of each process and seeing who has /dev/random
open then it would help a lot.
