Subject[Bcache v13 05/16] Export get_random_int()
This is needed for bcache - it needs a fast source of random numbers for
the throttling code in order to fuzz IO sizes, but the random numbers
don't need to be any good (and it immediately converts it to a
binomially distributed random number with popcount anyways).
