WPS: Add option for using random UUID
If the uuid configuration parameter is not set, wpa_supplicant generates an UUID automatically to allow WPS operations to proceed. This was previously always using an UUID generated from the MAC address. This commit adds an option to use a random UUID instead. The type of the automatically generated UUID is set with the auto_uuid parameter: 0 = based on MAC address (default; old behavior), 1 = random UUID.
