This patch intends to skip PSK re-calculation.
Because tiny device requires long time for PSK re-calculation.

As you say, our Android application can save PSK and check modification.
But Android settings application can change the PSK also.
Then our application can not recoginze the modification.
And application can not get current PSK from wpa_supplicant via wpa_cli.

So we want to check it on wpa_supplicant.
