I'd assume this would result in empty EAP identity getting used and that
does not sound ideal. I'd rather make it auto-generated with something
similar to how IMSI is used in EAP-SIM/AKA/AKA' (which, I'd assume, is
what you are referring to with "PCSC logic"). Without that change, I
would rather not apply this.
