 Module Name:	src

 	src/sys/rump/net/lib/libshmif: if_shmem.c
 Log Message:
 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.
