Another possibility is to split the gnutls random generator
initialization to preinitialization (open fds, check for getrandom()),
and initialization (read from the previous detected sources). That would
allow gnutls to be used on early boot without causing any delay. The
drawback would be some performance penalty on multi-threaded
environments on the usage of the random generator.
