I was also wondering about that, but then I found that hostap has 
already been registered there, as 
(that is the PEN reference in RFC 6929) reads:
>> 39068
>>  hostapd/wpa_supplicant project

I guess this because of this entry in src/eap_common/eap_defs.h:
>> EAP_VENDOR_HOSTAP = 39068 /* hostapd/wpa_supplicant project */,

The sub-IDs for HostAP-Probe-IES / HostAP-Assoc-IES need to be managed 
within the hostapd/wpa_supplicant project.

The commit messages provides an example FreeRADIUS dictionary file entry 
to enable the use of HostAP-Probe-IES / HostAP-Assoc-IES attribute names 
within FreeRADIUS config files. As this entry needs to be added manually 
to FreeRADIUS and was non-obvious to me, I found it convenient to 
provide it there and to describe what this change actually adds to the 
RADIUS requests.
