Here is a patch to use the new getrandom() syscall of Linux 3.17 in the Python function os.urandom().

The function falls back to reading /dev/urandom if getrandom() is not supported (returns ENOSYS at runtime).

On my Linux 3.18, the EINTR path is never taken. But I was able to test it manually by setting flags to GRND_RANDOM (2) and injecting many signals using signal.setitimer(): see my http://bugs.python.org/issue23285#msg237100
