No, hostapd does not control any filtering that would benefit of this
attribute and as such, it is not parsed from Access-Accept. Do you have
some specific use cases in mind for this attribute? What would you like
hostapd to do if the RADIUS server includes this attribute? I could
think of adding a callback function to be called when Access-Accept is
received. This function would likely be empty at least for the time
being, but there would be a clear place to add some custom code if
someone wants to add extra actions based on Access-Accept. It would also
be possible to just send this frame to another process to allow changing
this behavior without having to modify hostapd.
