> + * Although APIs between multiple entropy sources might be similar, every source has to define its

I had more an `@note This API is considered as internal. Only use it if you know what you're doing and expect API changes without deprecation.` in mind.

Btw: The `@internal` is ignored by `make doc` due to the default Doxygen configuration. E.g. when looking at the [documentation of `STACK_CANARY_WORD`](https://api.riot-os.org/group__cpu__cortexm__common.html#ga2f0d4a98f077a68bc8e4046d80b9027b), there is no way to notice that this is intended to be internal.
