Log Message:
Switch from NIST CTR_DRBG with AES to NIST Hash_DRBG with SHA-256.


- larger seeds -- a 128-bit key alone is not enough for `128-bit security'
- better resistance to timing side channels than AES
- a better-understood security story (
- no loss in compliance with US government standards that nobody ever
  got fired for choosing, at least in the US-dominated western world
- no dirty endianness tricks
- self-tests


- performance hit: throughput is reduced to about 1/3 in naive measurements
  => possible to mitigate by using hardware SHA-256 instructions
  => all you really need is 32 bytes to seed a userland PRNG anyway
  => if we just used ChaCha this would go away...
