Random number generation in kernel?

Hi there, my Stream application requires the use of a random number generator inside the kernel code. Since the standard c libraries aren't available and there isn't a random function in the kernel intrinsics, what's the best way to achieve this? Have I missed a library somewhere or will I need to implement a simple custom generator inside the kernel code?

Many thanks.
