Ok, I pushed fixes for Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6.

Summary for Solaris:

- Python 2.7, 3.4: read from /dev/urandom (use a private file descriptor)
- Python 3.5, 3.6: use the getrandom() function on Solaris 11.3 and newer (no file descriptor), or fallback on reading from /dev/urandom (use a private file descriptor)

getentropy() is no more used on Solaris.

@John Beck: It would be great if you could run test_os on the development branches 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 and default (3.6).
