Description:
------------
mt_rand() returns the different values from original mt19937ar.c.
Although mt_rand() is required to be generate random numbers, I am concerned about that this difference implies possibly deterioration of randomness quality.


Test script:
---------------
<?php
mt_srand(12345678);
for ($i=0; $i<10; $i++)
    echo mt_rand().PHP_EOL;


Expected result:
----------------
527860569
1711027313
1280820687
688176834
770499160
412773096
813703253
898651287
52508912
757323740


Actual result:
--------------
1614640687
1711027313
857485497
688176834
1386682158
