Submission from: (NULL) (


I decided to introduce a new option TLS_EGDSOCK that makes tls_seed_PRNG()
*additionally* try to seed the RNG from an egd socket. This option can be
non-user-only since it can't accidently make all users use the same RNG
seed. The patch shouldn't change the behaviour of TLS_RANDFILE in any way.
It works for me on Irix 6.5.

I also removed the unused egdsocket variable which was perhaps used to
save the state of initialization but isn't used now.
bye, Micha
