on a powered down controller, you can not do any crypto. SMP is only during a 
connection and the RPAs are only generated when needed. So yes, doing this once 
in hci_power_on is plenty. However we might want to limit this to LE capable 
controllers since for BR/EDR only controllers this is not needed. For A2MP I 
need to check that we need the random numbers seeded there. However this hidden 
behind the high speed feature.
