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.
