Subject: [PATCH v2 02/11] random32: introduce random32_get_bytes() and random32_get_bytes_state()

Add functions to get the requested number of pseudo-random bytes.

The difference from get_random_bytes() is that it generates pseudo-random
numbers by random32().  It is fast, suitable for generating random bytes
for testing, and reproducible if random32_get_bytes_state() is used.
