Hm, libc version is (or was) a separate file with a different copyright. Usual pattern in libkern is to just copy the libc files to libkern verbatim and only fixup as needed to compile. I don't know that we always have to do that, but we should at least confirm the arc4random_uniform copyright follows the code.

Right, I didn't pay attention to the licence of the file when I opened it. I'll fix that in a bit
