The last time I looked at this compatibility layer, I did not find
suitable functionality for implementing EAP methods due to the
requirement of doing I/O with own routines (instead of using TCP

If someone is planning on converting FreeRADIUS to use GnuTLS, it might
be worthwhile to take a look at the TLS wrapper I designed for
wpa_supplicant (EAP peer) and hostapd (EAP server). It includes
implementation for both OpenSSL and GnuTLS, i.e., there is a build time
option to select which one to use and core code does not need any
changes regardless of which TLS library is used. I would assume that
similar design would work fine with FreeRADIUS, too, or at least
tls_gnutls.c wrapper implementation can provide some examples on how
EAP-TLS/PEAP/TTLS can be implemented with GnuTLS.
