Ok so I've been told this is related to the random module.
Having had a look through the code I now understand what the problem is.
I think that for those people using /dev/sysmouse under X that
having random_harvest in scmouse.c is probably ill advised.
Those running X without using moused won't be being affected.
Can we have a flag for syscons to turn this off, or do we just turn off
moused and run X with direct access to the mouse? Since it seems you
can do this, there wouldn't seem to be harm in having a flag.
I still need the random module to use ssh (and I used to have it built
into my kernel, so I could simply unload it).
It seems a bit of a shame that if you want to use your sound card that
you give up X, or you give up ssh.
