Fix typo in pg_srand48 (srand48 in older branches).
">" should be ">>". This typo results in failure to use all of the bits
of the provided seed.
This might rise to the level of a security bug if we were relying on
srand48 for any security-critical purposes, but we are not --- in fact,
it's not used at all unless the platform lacks srandom(), which is
improbable. Even on such a platform the exposure seems minimal.
Reported privately by Andres Freund.
