openssl: Enable os option for with-rand-seed as well
with openSSL 1.1.1d we start seeing errors like Error Generating Key 139979727451584:error:2406C06E:random number generator:RAND_DRBG_instantiate:error retrieving entropy:../openssl-1.1.1d/crypto/rand/drbg_lib.c:342: when using openssl from openssl-native on build hosts, this is due to limiting the random seed to devrandom, to support older hosts, since the option allows to have a comma separated list of methods to try, we can try the default first and if that fails then fallback to devrandom, this will ensure that it keeps working with build systems which dont support getrandom() (From OE-Core rev: 8b4edb8552b238680d8dcef565e830a8e28a223c) Signed-off-by: Khem Raj <> Cc: Adrian Bunk <> Cc: Alexander Kanavin <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
