  I am trying to upgrade openssl-1.1.1c with openssl-3.0.8.
We have an existing code that calls RAND_Bytes() which
now fails with above error code: [error:1200006C:lib(36)::reason(108)]

ossl_pool_acquire_entropy() <- this returns no entropy.

The pool->len is always zero.
I do not see ossl_rand_pool_add() or ossl_rand_pool_add_begin()
ever called.

What am I missing? Looks like the random code in openssl has changed
significantly but can not figure out what do I need to do for the
entropy pool
to kick start.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you
