shmif: use cprng_strong64 instead of cprng_fast64 to generate a unique ID
shmif uses random bytes generated by cprng(9) as a unique device ID
between rump kernels to identify packets fed by itself and not receive
them. So if generated bytes are identical between shmif interfaces on
different rump kernels, shmif may drop incoming packets unintentionally.
This is one cause of recent ATF test failures of IPsec.
Fix it by using cprng_strong64 instead of cprng_fast64. This is a
workaround and we should also investigate why cprng_fast64 starts
failing on rump kernels, although using cprng_strong64 in initialization
itself is feasible.
