Explanation of the "Newer Linux distros don't boot on #Ryzen 3000 CPUs" issue:
- #systemd has a patch but hasn't rolled a stable release since it went in (April), so most newer distros (even Arch) never picked it up
Older Linux distributions (e.g. #Ubuntu 18.04 LTS) are safe, only systemd 240/241/242 use RDRAND
#Debian 10 is not affected, devs manually applied the RDRAND patch shortly before release
