I still believe the underlying system API use should be fixed rather than all the different instances where it gets used.

getrandom() should not block. If it does on a platform, that's a bug on that platform and Python should revert to the alternative of using /dev/urandom directly (or whatever other source of randomness is available).

Disabling hash randomization is not a good workaround for the issue, since it will definitely pop up in other areas as well.
