unified diff for /usr/share/man/man9/random_harvest.9

I am using FreeBSD 10.2-PRERELEASE amd64 r285345.

I've found a manual bug at /usr/share/man/man9/random_harvest.9.

The function description

void random_harvest(void *entropy, u_int size, u_int bits, u_int frac,
     enum esource source);

is different from the current definition in <sys/random.h> as

void random_harvest(void *, u_int, u_int, enum esource);

and in /usr/src/sys/dev/random/harvest.c as:

random_harvest(void *entropy, u_int count, u_int bits, enum esource origin)

The attached patch is to fix the random_harvest.9 file.

Thank you for your attention to detail, but unfortunately the man-page was substantially rewritten in r284959, and 10.x was EOL on October 31, 2018 according to https://www.freebsd.org/security/unsupported.html
