I wanted to use the per-device-PSK (WPA) feature in conjunction with a radius server that does the authorization checking and should supply the psk.                                                                                          
I found RouterOS to have a feature like this (Miktronik-Wireless-PSK or so radius attribute) but no source and a hint on this mailing list                                                                                                    
that it should not be difficult to implement.                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Please find a patch against git head attached that compiles fine and is currently under testing.                                                                                                                                              
To use this, one needs to enable the macaddr_acl = RADIUS setting and have wpa_psk_radius=1.                                                                                                                                                  
For Freeradius, one needs to add

to the dictionary file and make sure that either Hostapd-Passphrase or Hostapd-PSK (the latter has higher priority) is in the radius reply.                                                                                                   
The PSK should be supplied hex encoded, the passphrase is turned into a psk by hostapd.                                                                                                                                                       
The Vendor ID will be changed once assigned by IANA.
