    then mark the entropy generator experimental if you believe that. its
    irrelevant here.

    this is just taking a behavior that is inconsistent (do NICs enable
    SA_SAMPLE_RANDOM), making it consistent (SA_SAMPLE_NET_RANDOM), and
    making it configurable. Nothing is experimental. This does not change
    things; it makes things configurable.
