Well, the no-brainer solution is to make some file available at
`/dev/urandom', like it is commonly done for `/dev/random'.

Or you install one of the existing random translators on these nodes, see
<http://hurd.gnufans.org/bin/view/Hurd/RandomDevice>.  Note that I also
just updated this very page, for example I attached a ``mbox.bz2
containing all the emails concerning this topic which I was able to
gather from public archives'' and added linked to ``Sune Kirkeby's
incomplete port of the Linux /dev/{,u}random device driver''.
