What is generating this EAP packet? It does not look correct (missing
one octet in the end).

Are you sure you need that kind of workaround? It would sound more
reasonable to fix the other end that is not sending a valid packet..
Sure, you can hack the code to remove that validation, but unless that
type of EAP implementation is deployed somewhere, I would prefer not to
do this type of hacks.
