This realm demand depended on RADIUS server configuration. EAP-AKA
RFC4187 recommend (section 4.1.1.5) that realm should be generated
according to 3GPP TS 23.003.

Supplicant already contain necessary handler, which generate full
identity from IMSI (eap_sm_imsi_identity() function in
src/eap_peer/eap.c). But seems that this routine is never called when
you use SIM simulator. Try to configure realm manually.

For example instead of:

network={
...
identity="0232010000000000"
...
}

configure identity in following way:

network={
...
identity="0232010000000000 at wlan.mnc001.mcc232.3gppnetwork.org"
...
}

Be careful, MNC in Europe contain 2 digits and you should put leading
zero before it, but in North America MNC contain 3 digits.
