random: fix output buffer folding
(As reported by linux@horizon.com) Folding is done to minimize the theoretical possibility of systematic weakness in the particular bits of the SHA1 hash output. The result of this bug is that 16 out of 80 bits are un-folded. Without a major new vulnerability being found in SHA1, this is harmless, but still worth fixing.
