Which EAP message are you talking about? Registering init_for_reauth()
allows you to maintain EAP method state so that you can build the
identity with the session id in the next run. If you want the
alternative form of identity in EAP-Response/Identity message, then
you can use the get_identity() callback for it (i.e., generate that
identity with sessid in that callback of the EAP method implementation).
Though, I'd recommend using proper NAI rather than an NAI with extra
information added to its end for the EAP-Response/Identity message since
that string gets used for forwarding the RADIUS (etc.) messages.
