James/Robie, where would one tweak which random source is used? Currently playing around with it btu I don't understand why tweaking a certain new setting has the effect it seems to have...

So there is this new /proc/sys/kernel/random/urandom_min_reseed_secs which is said to be the time between reseeding urandom (assuming from random). This is defaulting to 60s. If I change it to 5s, it feels like tomcat comes up quicker. Somehow that would only make sense to me if whatever tomcat waits for is urandom already.

Btw, the system does boot for me. It is just the 8080 socket that seems to appear only later (and which the testcase checks for)
