How does this work?  It's a new synbol name, so there's no definition,
so the weak reference is always null.

It is peeking it from the program.

Basically the problem is that the random translator uses glibc, whose
malloc implementation started using /dev/random in glibc 2.34, thus
reading itself.

I still don't understand.  Why isn't the condition always false?

The definition is in the random translator, which exports it in its
dynamic symbol table.

Oh, so there is a companion patch that is not reflected in the glibc
sources?
