    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.
