python: Don't use getentropy on Linuxobi/master
Backport a patch from 2.7 branch to fix a regression with glibc 2.24 causing "OSError: [Errno 38] Function not implemented" when calling urandom() with older kernels. Signed-off-by: Andreas Oberritter <obi@opendreambox.org>

+Subject: [PATCH] Don't use getentropy() on Linux
+
+Issue #29188: Support glibc 2.24 on Linux: don't use getentropy() function but
+read from /dev/urandom to get random bytes, for example in os.urandom(). On
+Linux, getentropy() is implemented which getrandom() is blocking mode, whereas
+os.urandom() should not block.
+
+(cherry picked from commit 2687486756721e39164fa9f597e468c35d495227)
