i just posted this question :)
but with padlock as well,
i believe you can ignore it, 
i think it is try to find HW random support which you might not have,
i.e. what cpu you using, etc?
i have ignored it in the past without issue.

what i need to find out is, what is padlock, and can it be ignored.
