 *     In particular, we propose a tightly coded xorshift128+ generator that
 *     does not fail systematically any test from the BigCrush suite of TestU01
 *     (even reversed) and generates 64 pseudorandom bits in 1.10 ns on an
 *     Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @3.40GHz (Haswell). It is the fastest
 *     generator we are aware of with such empirical statistical properties.

 * This generator is not suitable as a cryptographically secure random number
