My assumption is that the other Unixes weren't looking at interrupt
to begin with, i.e. they've always been as starved for entropy as Linux
Well, you know what they say about assumptions.
Smart people will come around and help correct them? :)
That being said, does VXWorks even *have* an OS provided
strong random number generator?
Don't know, don't care.
Why not? It carries your data.
Windows has CryptGenRandom, which AFAIK doesn't block, and survives
everything but VM suspend/restore.
FreeBSD also doesn't block.
May I ask what FreeBSD's entropy sources are?
