Well, there apparently _is_ a bug in haveged. However, as it only
affects non-default configurations, can be worked around easily and the
only known (and feasible) way to fix it would require a version upgrade,
I would prefer leaving it unfixed unless we are positively sure there
are 13.1 users who have strong need to use values bigger than 4066.
