Consider looking at SeedRNG for RNG initialization

Recently I have come across [1] Jason Donenfeld's SeedRNG [2] which provides
a correct way of handling RNG initialization/seeding in early init and shutdown.

As the code is meant to be reused and handles the process properly,
I believe it is worth looking into.

Maybe it could even be the backbone of s6-fillurandompool if adding the
requirement of using a seed file is acceptable?
