Are you saying that you would like to send out the EAP frame without
fragmentation? I would just increase the fragmentation threshold instead
of trying to come up with a mechanism to handle the fragments.. In order
to get the next EAP-TLS fragment, you would need to send an EAP-TLS Ack
frame to request it.
