	yes, partially.
	- (1) if you have rnd(4) configured to the kernel config file, and 
	  (2) your sys/netinet/tcp_subr.c is after 1.30 (1997/10),
	  you are okay.  this means that, for official releases, 1.3 and
	  higher is okay.
	- otherwise, you are affected by the issue.

	i think we should do an advisory, as many of architectures shipped
	with rnd(4) disabled in GENERIC configuration file, for 1.3 and 1.4.
	i'll try to cook up a draft.
