Subject: [PATCH libXdmcp 1/3] Use getentropy() if arc4random_buf() is not
 available

This allows to fix CVE-2017-2625 on Linux platforms without pulling in
libbsd.
The libc getentropy() is available since glibc 2.25 but also on OpenBSD.
For Linux, we need at least a v3.17 kernel. If the recommended
arc4random_buf() function is not available, emulate it by first trying
to use getentropy() on a supported glibc and kernel. If the call fails,
fall back to the current (vulnerable) code.
