 * Portable OpenSSH PRNG seeding:
 * If OpenSSL has not "internally seeded" itself (e.g. pulled data from
 * /dev/random), then we execute a "ssh-rand-helper" program which
 * collects entropy and writes it to stdout. The child program must
 * write at least RANDOM_SEED_SIZE bytes. The child is run with stderr
 * attached, so error/debugging output should be visible.
 *
 * XXX: we should tell the child how many bytes we need.
