dev/random needs to be writable
|Reported by:||fishpond||Owned by:||nobody|

dev/random currently is read-only. On other OSs, writing data to it is used for seeding or increasing the entropy.
OpenJDK's NativePRNG class uses dev/random writes and will thus throw exceptions on re-seeding.
With the attached patch, I'm able to run Netbeans 7.3beta2 with only few problems remaining.
