Does LUKs have  a NIST SP 800-90Ar1 DRBG??  We are trying use use LUKS
but need to maybe replace /dev/urandom  and/or /dev/random
to be able to get some certifications for our equipment.

If we need to use some other DRBG, would it be pretty simple to use that
Instead of /dev/random or /dev/urandom?
