Don't generate security key pairs on every device boot

We could save serious time by not regenerating the addresses and keypairs on
every device boot. It doesn't really need to, just when it's a new image.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by that. What security key pairs?
If you mean the dropbear ssh keys they are only generated if they don't exist.
(See /etc/init.d/dropbear):

dropbearkey -t rsa -f $DROPBEAR_RSAKEY
dropbearkey -t dss -f $DROPBEAR_DSSKEY

I'm going to close this as invalid for now. If this is not your issue please
feel free to clarify and reopen. I also changed the component to sysinit.
