:Recommended minor alteration to the L15 algorithm in
:DragonFly's /dev/[u]random random number generator:
:I recommend that you alter your C implementation of my
:L15 algorithm as per the description:
:So that the "y" state index is initialised to be
:(stateSize - 1)/255 instead of 0.
:"y" as in "x", "z".
:R Carey.

    Oh, also Robin if you could, again take a look at our
    /usr/src/sys/kern_nrandom.c file and tell me what lines I
    have to adjust to make the above change.

    I want to get it right and I'm just not sure which lines you
    are talking about here.
