Bug#927972: jitterentropy_rng.ko never loads
As part of my work on a downstream privacy distro, I tested jitternentropy-rngd while integrating it and discovered the complementing kernel module jitterentropy_rng.ko never loads on boot as it is supposed to when the userspace jitterentropy daemon is installed. As a VM based OS a reliable entropy source that guarantees /dev/urandom is safely seeded is a priority. To test if it works one would see the signs described by the jitter dev Stephan Mueller . I;ve confirmed that oddly no dmesg messages appear and the userspace service churns along fine despite the module silently never loading. Please try to fix this when possible. I will report this problem against the jitter package too.
