Well, I would use eap_my_type.c instead of that horrible mixed case
file name.. ;-), but yes, this is more or less what is needed. You will
also need to add the new EAP type into the users file. If you use
username/password, this is trivial addition. If some other fields are
needed, they would need to be added to the config file parser and in
addition, some changes would likely be needed for code that is fetching
the user data.
