Does this mean that we can get rid of running rngd the wrong way? [1]

[1] Currently cerowrt runs rngd -r /dev/urandom, which is exactly what should not be done
,as it would essentially make /dev/random non-blocking like /dev/urandom and fool userspace into generating keys without enough entropy, etc.:
