Why do you think that these are from wpa_supplicant? They are not..
That looks like a debug print from net/mac80211 (i.e., Linux kernel). It
is printed at debug level, so it sounds like you're system is configured
to log all debug information into /var/log/messages. Anyway, that debug
print could be removed from mac80211 since it is not really that
important information in most cases.
