Openssh taking minutes to become available, booting takes half an hour ... because your server waits for a few bytes of randomness

@angristan Is it affected to openssh client?
I saw that ssh client hangs since few weeka ago


@angristan Wasn't that *systemd* issue, technically? :eo_thinking:

I think it's both a systemd and an OpenSSH issue.
At startup, systemd need entropy, OpenSSH (probably) need entropy too.
On some fast machines with SSD (I saw this in the past) there was not enough entropy generated quickly at startup, so the system is way longer to boot than normal.
