[Openmcl-devel] make-random-state error caused by ccl::ip-interfaces error on Windows

Thanks.  I have a feeling that the only way to tell how many IP
interfaces you have is to say "I've reserved space for information
about N" and have Windows either tell you "No, you need M, try again"
or "That's not enough, try again".  Whatever the response is - I don't
remember - we should try again rather than just returning NIL.
