Hi all

As mentioned here, there has been a discussion about $subject and the
fact that it may be rather useless:

--disable-strong-random is also untested in the buildfarm.

Attached is a patch to clean up the code, which removes all the code
specific to random generation for backends (no more shmem code paths
and such), as well as the pg_frontend_random() and
pg_backend_random(). Thoughts or opinions?
