I don't know which, if any, of these bugs you want to address in any 
stable releases.

If fixing bug 276 "rte_rand() bit 31 and 63 are always zero" is enough, 
then one could either split this patch set in two (w/ only the new 
rte_rand() going into stable), or develop a smaller fix based on lrand48().

Since the old implementation was an inline function, any fix will 
require a recompilation.
