Instructions for creating and maintaining /dev/(u)random have been requested as
a FAQ item. The FAQ maintainer thinks they would better fit BLFS.

These instructions entail the creation of two devices and a boot script (to
carry entropy across shutdown). Full details are in random(4) on a typical
LFS system.
