Subject: [PATCH] lib: Correct comment of prandom_seed

Variable 'entropy' was wrongly documented as 'seed', changed comment to
reflect actual variable name.

../lib/random32.c:179: warning: Function parameter or member 'entropy' not described in 'prandom_seed'
../lib/random32.c:179: warning: Excess function parameter 'seed' description in 'prandom_seed'
