prandom: introduce prandom_bytes() and prandom_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 prandom_u32().  It doesn't consume the entropy pool, and the
sequence is reproducible if the same rnd_state is used.  So it is suitable
for generating random bytes for testing.
