Add some semi randomness spinners which are spun on somewhat random
Fri Aug 15 12:14:58 2003 George Lebl <email@example.com> * daemon/cookie.[ch], daemon/slave.c, daemon/xdmcp.c, daemon/gdm.c: Add some semi randomness spinners which are spun on somewhat random occasions. This should add to our entropy a bit especially on systems without /dev/random (20 bytes of semi randomness is added this way). And try /dev/srandom on openbsd. * daemon/cookie.c: don't read the buffer max from /dev/random, but only the required size, the (there's no need to md5 512 bytes of truly random data just to get 16 bytes). Require 32 bytes from /dev/random (this is what openssl does apparently), also from openssl, /dev/random still sometimes blocks, so set up a select loop for it that waits 10ms at most. Also try /dev/mem as one of the files in case we can't get enough entropy from /dev/random. * daemon/slave.c: some G_UNLIKELY/G_LIKELY code from yesterday that was still uncommitted * daemon/auth.c: set egid as well as euid when testing for root squashing * gui/gdmXnestchooser.c: add some IGNORE_EINTR * gui/gdmchooser.c: make sure the ARRAY8's are initialized to zero so that we don't possibly crash on bad return packet.
