    I have checked again the patches and they allow a lot of drivers to feed
    the entropy pool that otherwise wouldn't had ever contributed to it. Thus
    it changes things and opens the question about the effects on entropy
    estimate. See the figures, three (3) nics to date reference SA_SAMPLE_RANDOM.
    As the fact that 2.4 is supposed to be a stable serie, I assume it's
    irrelevant.
