Oh; it's not actually hashlib which is calling getrandom(), it's the main runtime - the initialization of the per-process secret hash seed in _PyRandom_Init

Don't know enough about the internal logic here to comment on what the Right Thing is; but I second the suggestion of msg264303. This might just require setting "flags" to GRND_NONBLOCK in py_getrandom() assuming that's portable to other OS.
