First of all, 4b54bd3ae8 is already on master so the question is just
what we do for 2018.02.x?

Just cherrypicking the bump to 2.32 is certainly the easiest, but
perhaps also riskier than just cherry-picking the getrandom() changes:

git shortlog v2.31.. -- lib/randutils.c
Carlo Caione (1):
      lib/randutils: Do not block on getrandom()

Karel Zak (1):
      lib/randutils: don't break on EAGAIN, use usleep()

On the other hand, util-linux bumps are normally quite safe and we have
not had any issues reported, so perhaps we should just go for 2.32 for
2018.02.x as well?
