Should be ‘expat/fixed’, right?

Otherwise LGTM, thanks!

+Subject: [PATCH] Resolve call to srand, use more entropy (patch version 1.0)
+
+Squashed backport against vanilla Expat 2.1.1, addressing:
+* CVE-2012-6702 -- unanticipated internal calls to srand
+* CVE-2016-5300 -- use of too little entropy
+
+Since commit e3e81a6d9f0885ea02d3979151c358f314bf3d6d
+(released with Expat 2.1.0) Expat called srand by itself
+from inside generate_hash_secret_salt for an instance
+of XML_Parser if XML_SetHashSalt was either (a) not called
+for that instance or if (b) salt 0 was passed to XML_SetHashSalt
+prior to parsing.  That call to srand passed (rather litle)
+entropy extracted from the current time as a seed for srand.
+
+That call to srand (1) broke repeatability for code calling
+srand with a non-random seed prior to parsing with Expat,
+and (2) resulted in a rather small set of hashing salts in
+Expat in total.
+
+For a short- to mid-term fix, the new approach avoids calling
+srand altogether, extracts more entropy out of the clock and
+other sources, too.
+
+For a long term fix, we may want to read sizeof(long) bytes
+from a source like getrandom(..) on Linux, and from similar
+sources on other supported architectures.
