Subject: PR/54897 CVS commit: src/sys/rump/net/lib/libshmif

 Module Name:	src

 Modified Files:
 	src/sys/rump/net/lib/libshmif: if_shmem.c
 Log Message:
 shmif: use cprng_strong32 to generate random bytes for a MAC address
 cprng_fast32 sometimes returns indentical bytes, which look
 "20:0e:11:33" in a MAC address, on different rump_server instances.
 That leads MAC address duplications resulting in a test failure.
 Fix it by using cprng_strong32 instead of cprng_fast32.  However
 we should rather fix cprng_fast32 (or rump itself) somehow.
 The fix mitigates PR kern/54897 but test failures due to other
 causes still remain.
