    FWIW, we (systemd) have also seen a number of problems with RDRAND as well. Probably the most notable was this issue where it was broken on some subset of AMD CPUs, which eventually was fixed by a microcode update. There’s a lot of good discussion in that issue about its uses, non-uses, and edge cases, with a good coverage of a lot of points of view on the subject.
