Log message:
	Add random suffix to archive file names to prevent races when being created.
	
	In certain configurations, we're not under a VG rw lock while trying to write
	a new archive file with VG metadata. A common example is using "vgs" while
	having the content of backup and archive directories empty. The code scans the
	content of these directories and tries to determine the final index that should
	be used in archive name. Since we're not under a lock, we can get into a race
	while choosing the index which could end up showing errors about not being able
	to rename to final archive name. Let's add random number suffix to these archive
	file names so we can avoid the race.
