Description

Several other operating systems, including Linux, FreeBSD (12), and Solaris (11.4) all support a getrandom(2) syscall that are all largely compatible with each other. Software is starting to require this interface as a result. We should make our getrandom(2) public as well (via libc of course) so that such software can build on illumos derived distros.
