Default Update your FreeBSD-CURRENT kernel

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/...ry/054580.html

"I discovered an issue where the new framework code was not calling
randomdev_init_reader, which means that read_random(9) was not returning
good random data. read_random(9) is used by arc4random(9) which is
the primary method that arc4random(3) is seeded from."
