Add function to generate random identifier
The function is a wrapper on top of getrandom() (if available via glibc) or corresponding syscall. If neither is available than failure is always returned. It's intended to generate small random data good enough for session identifiers and keys. To generate long-term cryptographic keys it's better to use special crypto libraries (like GnuTLS for example) instead. As an example it's used to replace old insecure random number generator in osmo-auc-gen utility. Change-Id: I0241b814ea4c4ce1458f7ad76e31d390383c2048 Related: OS#1694
