Akinobu Mita - Nov. 13, 2012, 1:37 p.m.
Add functions to get the requested number of pseudo-random bytes.

The difference from get_random_bytes() is that it generates pseudo-random
numbers by prandom_u32().  It doesn't consume the entropy pool, and the
sequence is reproducible if the same rnd_state is used.  So it is suitable
for generating random bytes for testing.

---
* v3
- rename random32_get_bytes_state to prandom_bytes_state
- ensure prandom_bytes_state() generates same bytes with same rnd_state

* v2
- rename prandom32_get_bytes to random32_get_bytes_state
