Entropy Pool on U60


I observed some strange behaviour on my U60.

Whenever I ask to generate a key (like using the dnssec-keygen),
the system takes age to answer.

stracing it show that is sits idle waiting for the entropy pool
to fill up enough randomness to generate a key.

I saw in the proc pool that the pool is filling byte by byte using

Is there a way to fill up this pool  with a daemon or something ?

I didn't see any source of hardware randomness on the U60.
Is there such a device ?
