Subject: [PATCH v8 4/7] Invoke DRBG from common libgcrypt RNG code

Integrate the DRBG invocation with the common libgcrypt RNG code. This
integration replaces the old ANSI X9.31 RNG invocation. As the ANSI
X9.31 shall only be invoked in FIPS mode and it is sunset at the end of
2014 for FIPS purposes, a complete replacement with the DRBG is
considered appropriate. The DRBG is FIPS approved deterministic random
number generator for the forseeable future.
