Hello Kurt,

Unfortunately, I don't have that patch to share with you.

But, I can share that back in the day (pre Solaris 9), and before the 
patch you are referencing came out, there were 3rd party /dev/random 
devices available for Solaris.

For what its worth, if you are not able to find a copy of that patch, I 
might suggest you look here.


Hope this helps.
