Hi,

Linux kernel pre-2.6.29 already contains a new AUXV tag:

+#define AT_RANDOM 25   /* address of 16 random bytes */

http://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2008-10/threads.html#00006
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=f06295b44c296c8fb08823a3118468ae343b60f2

Considering obvious but requesting approval; to make GDB aware of it.


Thanks,
Jan
