      Description

      https://github.com/cfengine/core/commit/570724e752cf131132bb88e65a031f700b0ac424
      https://github.com/cfengine/core/commit/e7f0dc7983ff1242df8c9b602a0db08190097ae3

      These commits were reverted because they cause the low entropy check to trigger inside a chroot test environment. Reverting is certainly not the correct fix for the problem, but this needs to be looked at in more detail when Jimis is back, so it's good enough for now.

      Possible proper fixes include:

      • We may be missing a source of entropy inside the chroot, so it may be possible to tweak it to gain access to that source.
      • If it's not possible to generate enough entropy inside the chroot, we may need to skip the strict entropy check inside the test environment.
