I looked at that use, but as far as I can tell, it is only used as a
flag at this time, the bits returned by getnanotime() does not end up
in the entropy pool ?

I'm not dissatisfied about that btw, the output from getnanotime()
is not very random at all, unless you dive into the timecounter
code to find out what the parameters are.
