Similar to #24659, we should provide a way to wrap our C code for getting randomness in Rust, while implementing the appropriate traits (from rand) so that we're able to switch in Rust implementations if we want later.

This is also blocking #23886.

I'd like to solve this one, as my first contribution.

Cool! Please ask if you have any questions. There is some possibly helpful documentation in the doc/HACKING subdirectory of the Tor repository, and there are frequently helpful people on the #tor-dev IRC channel on OFTC.
