Sorry if I'm missing something very obvious, but what does a kernel
module for 802.1x do that a user-space daemon and other functionality
already in the kernel can't do?

Isn't it possible to make a user-space daemon that
1. puts a rule in Linux's ebtables to DROP all non-EAPOL frames
2. Waits for EAPOL frames and does what needs to be done with them
