Sorry, what is getrandom()?

Linux 3.17 has a new getrandom() syscall, but the C API is not defined yet (see the issue #22181). OpenBSD 5.6 will have a getentropy() syscall and a gentropy() function in the C libray.

If if you are discussing about an hypothetical function in the C library, it's out of the scope if this bug tracker. Python don't call directly syscalls (ok, there is only one place in _posixsubprocess to avoid a race condition).
