There is no configuration item for this and it should be possible to add
some sleep()/usleep() pretty much anywhere that processes EAP or RADIUS
messages to achieve this.. The cleanest place for this could be in
eapol_test.c just before the radius_client_send() call in
ieee802_1x_encapsulate_radius().
