Would you provide advice on the following messages from hostapd on
Linux? Do they imply that there will be problems with generating AES
keys? Does hostapd generate CCMP IV?

1) random: Not enough entropy pool available for secure operations.

2) WPA: Not enough entropy in random pool for secure operation -
update keys later when the first station connects.
