Again, this doesn't help, and might actually hurt.
- systemd-random-seed.service could actually add better (real) entropy.
(Upstream actually had an After systemd-random-seed.service for that
- a before on a "persistent" service does not really block, while
accessing the kernels random source when it's not uninitialised will,
so random consumers are already implicitly waiting for haveged - when
they need entropy and not a moment before.

Haveged is not entropy, it's a substitute. I dont know how many times I
need to point that out.
The less dependencies, the faster the system can startup (and lesser
chances of some stoopid deadlocks).
Look at the history for service.fedora , which is now the blueprint for
the v2 patch,
I considered just adding a switch to install the upstream service file,
but this adds several heavy isolation options that are overkill for most
and add dependencies (upstream just removed one of these, because it
created a cycle).
