The random number feature in Linux kernel 2.6 before 184.108.40.206, and
2.6.21.x before 220.127.116.11, (1) does not properly seed pools when there
is no entropy, or (2) uses an incorrect cast when extracting entropy,
which might cause the random number generator to provide the same
values after reboots on systems without an entropy source.
