at least i need a not-cryptographically-strong-but-okay random number,
for IPsec ESP IV generation and updates. I can use strong random
number, but based on the amount of random number grabbed, i want to
use something that does not chew entropy too much.
(i may be able to reuse the last IV value from the previous ESP packet,
but not sure if i should do that)
