Description

Linux introduced AT_RANDOM which adds a 16-byte quantity of data from /dev/urnadom into an an aux vector which is nominally usable for seending a PRNG. In this case, we'd like to add support for it as its necessary for the lx branded zone and doesn't really hurt a normal process, even if it's unlikely to be used.
