commit af07d241dc76f0a52c7ff04df3a3970020fe6157
Author: Hagen Paul Pfeifer <hagen@jauu.net>

    netfilter: fix hardcoded size assumptions
    
    get_random_bytes() is sometimes called with a hard coded size assumption
    of an integer. This could not be true for next centuries. This patch
    replace it with a compile time statement.
