  The "instance" name.

  There's no way to do a regex match like that.

  I don't see why you would want to, though.  The EAP module does
nothing in the "authorize" section.  It does all of its work in the
"authenticate" section.  So configuring multiple EAP modules and then
forcing them to use one instance for "authenticate" makes no sense.
Just configure one EAP module instead.
