Subject: CVE request: libressl before 2.0.2 under linux PRNG failure

Linux. 2.0.2 has been released:

Under certain conditions forking a process can create repeated random

LibreSSL 2.0.2 contains a workaround, although the reporter of this
issue thinks this may not be the best approach.

Please assign CVE.
