I don't know about the Android part, but I did confirm that the ./configure --help outputs are identical modulo the version number.

Can you mention which Android patches are no-longer required? As if we don't actually want to bump libevent, maybe we could move them into depends.

2.1.11 changelog is available here.

This PR would also need to update the libevent entry in doc/dependencies.md.

Which operating systems have you tested building / running Bitcoin Core on with the new libevent?

+checking for struct sockaddr_un... yes

That looks vaguely promising. Is there better UNIX socket support ?
Seems so: libevent/libevent@737d1be
Can't find anything similar for the HTTP client though.

This patch from @greenaddress for missing arc4random_addrandom. It is now handled in upstream.

This PR would also need to update the libevent entry in doc/dependencies.md.

Good point. Done.

Don't know about other Linux distros, but on Gentoo 2.1.8 is latest unmasked (stable) version, 2.1.11 is still masked.

FWIW, what distributions use is not important for what is used with depends. The binaries are statically linked to libevent and this doesn't change the minimum supported version for building from source (that's still 2.0.22).

I think the concern was the we don't want to be the bleeding edge testers of new releases, but rather want to wait for others to test new software and only then pull it in.

At least it is in debian experimental: https://packages.debian.org/experimental/libevent-dev 😬

Well, 0.20.0 is still more than 6 months away so by that time it surely won't be bleeding edge anymore.

I think better android support is a good reason to merge this. Would be nice to make some progress in that regard.

I haven't tested the build with this change but since the fix_android_arc4random_addrandom.patch is no longer used it's probably best to remove the file itself and its libevent.mk presence as well.
