CVS commit: src/sbin/rndctl

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   riastradh
Date:           Thu Apr 30 03:24:48 UTC 2020

Modified Files:
        src/sbin/rndctl: rndctl.c

Log Message:
Accept both byte orders for random seed in `rndctl -L'.

The file format was defined with a machine-dependent 32-bit integer
field (the estimated number of bits of entropy in the process that
generated it).  Take whichever byte order gives a number that is
reasonable, i.e. lower than the number of bits in the buffer.

Continue to have `rndctl -S' generate it in machine-dependent byte
order for now, so that if you roll back to an older rndctl(8) then
`rndctl -L' on the same machine will still be able to load it with
the right entropy estimate.  In a future revision, perhaps we can
change it to be little-endian.
