Build Update for openssl/openssl

Build: #25629
Status: Still Failing

Duration: 18 mins and 56 secs
Commit: a08714e (master)
Author: Dr. Matthias St. Pierre
Message: Revert the DEVRANDOM_WAIT feature

The DEVRANDOM_WAIT feature added a select() call to wait for the
`/dev/random` device to become readable before reading from the
`/dev/urandom` device. It was introduced in commit 38023b87f037
in order to mitigate the fact that the `/dev/urandom` device
does not block until the initial seeding of the kernel CSPRNG
has completed, contrary to the behaviour of the `getrandom()`
system call.

It turned out that this change had negative side effects on
performance which were not acceptable. After some discussion it
was decided to revert this feature and leave it up to the OS
resp. the platform maintainer to ensure a proper initialization
during early boot time.

Fixes #9078

This partially reverts commit 38023b87f037.
