    SubjectRe: [PATCH] ELF: implement AT_RANDOM for glibc PRNG seeding
    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
    Hash: SHA1

    There is no need for a AT_RANDOM_SIZE entry. It's unlikely that ever a
    different value is used. The kernel's entropy pool cannot be strssed
    that much. If more data is needed userlevel will use the bits to seed a
    PRNG.
