This bug has been copied from bug #1258642 and has been proposed
to be backported to 6.7 z-stream (EUS).
requested z-stream branch creation from rel-eng
Used Errata build (rng-tools-5-2.el6_7.x86_64) on 6.7-Server for verification:
[root@dell-pec5125-02 tmp]# man rngd | grep -A 2 '\-i\|-t.t '
Ignore repeated fips failures.
-t nnn, --timeout=nnn
Interval written to random-device when the entropy pool is full.
Note that this option exists for backward compatibility in
[root@dell-pec5125-02 tmp]# rngd -f -i -t 999 -r /dev/random
(running, not crashing)
