kernel - Update random number generator
* Update the random number generator with recommended changes to IBAA.
This addresses a short-cycle problem and prevents bad initial states.
* Passes diehard (as did the original).
* Note that DragonFly continuously injects entropy and was likely not
subject to these issues, and with these changes is even less so.
