Bug#978045: apache2-bin: Immediate exit with "AH00141: Could not initialize random number generator"

I think a perfectly valid fix would be to document (in the changelog or elsewhere) that this hard requirement was added, in particular because (IIUC) using getrandom() instead of one of the other codepaths is the choice of the package maintainer. (I.e. this isn't just the result of upstream.) Tracking down what broke and why was mostly tricky because it wasn't documented, and Googling only turns up results on an unrelated Windows issue.

I will add a note to the changelog
