 uses arcfour. Erandom is seeded from the state of frandom and uses no kernel
 entropy, but consequently is unsafe for cryptography. Frandom is seeded
 directly from the kernel entropy pool, but only once per use, and can provide

 erandom simply use frandom, such as dumping one block from frandom to /dev/null.
 The sysctl interfaces are available to provide entropy through chroot. Sysctl
 is a single thread interface, so the devices in /dev are attempted first. Even
