whoops. I think the "-ll" means low-latency. But the only
finger I have in that pie is:

--- 2.4.19-pre6/drivers/char/random.c~low-latency Fri Apr 5 12:11:17 2002
+++ 2.4.19-pre6-akpm/drivers/char/random.c Fri Apr 5 12:11:17 2002

So it's a bit of a mystery. It seems to think that it has
EXTRACT_ENTROPY_USER.
