Indeed, I'd close WONTFIX.

IMO, applications that:
- run at early boot, and
- get built with an older kernel than they run on
fall squarely into the enterprise distro turf, and CPython code shouldn't include hacks needed to make this work. That's not to say I'm opposed to collaboration if anyone else needs to solve this problem – quite the opposite. But I think a vendor-specific patch is the right layer here.

As currently documented, the getrandom call is not used on older kernels.

(Btw, no, it's not easy for *me* to help upgrading Fedora builders. But I can easily maintain a vendor patch for Python, if it comes to that.)
