The get_random_int function in drivers/char/random.c in the Linux
kernel before 2.6.30 produces insufficiently random numbers, which
allows attackers to predict the return value, and possibly defeat
protection mechanisms based on randomization, via vectors that
leverage the function's tendency to "return the same value over and
over again for long stretches of time."
