[release-branch.go1.9] runtime: use simple, more robust fastrandn CL 36932 (speed up fastrandn) made it faster but introduced bad interference with some properties of fastrand itself, making fastrandn not very random in certain ways. In particular, certain selects are demonstrably unfair. For Go 1.10 the new faster fastrandn has induced a new fastrand, which in turn has caused other follow-on bugs that are still being discovered and fixed. For Go 1.9.2, just go back to the barely slower % implementation that we used in Go 1.8 and earlier. This should restore fairness in select and any other problems caused by the clever fastrandn. The test in this CL is copied from CL 62530. Fixes #22253.
