As far as I have your patch understood it looks to me that a new random value 
should be returned.

As I'm not an expert I just want to ask if this new feature makes here sense.

I have seen this flag GRND_NONBLOCK have anyone experience with this function 
in no blocking application?

Best regards
Aleks
