lib/random32.c: minor cleanups and kdoc fix

These are just some very minor and misc cleanups in the PRNG.  In
prandom_u32() we store the result in an unsigned long which is
unnecessary as it should be u32 instead that we get from
prandom_u32_state().  prandom_bytes_state()'s comment is in kdoc format,
so change it into such as it's done everywhere else.  Also, use the
normal comment style for the header comment.  Last but not least for
readability, add some newlines.

This is a maximally equidistributed combined Tausworthe generator
based on code from GNU Scientific Library 1.5 (30 Jun 2004)
lfsr113 version:
x_n = (s1_n ^ s2_n ^ s3_n ^ s4_n)
s1_{n+1} = (((s1_n & 4294967294) << 18) ^ (((s1_n << 6) ^ s1_n) >> 13))
s2_{n+1} = (((s2_n & 4294967288) << 2) ^ (((s2_n << 2) ^ s2_n) >> 27))
s3_{n+1} = (((s3_n & 4294967280) << 7) ^ (((s3_n << 13) ^ s3_n) >> 21))
s4_{n+1} = (((s4_n & 4294967168) << 13) ^ (((s4_n << 3) ^ s4_n) >> 12))
The period of this generator is about 2^113 (see erratum paper).

... the k_j most significant bits of z_j must be non-
zero, for each j. (Note: this restriction also applies to the
computer code given in [4], but was mistakenly not mentioned in
that paper.)
This affects the seeding procedure by imposing the requirement
s1 > 1, s2 > 7, s3 > 15, s4 > 127.
