configuration parameters for perl module in rlm_perl

I had the same need.

I made some changes to rlm_perl to handle a configuration sub-section, eg:

perl my_perl_instance {
	filename = ${modconfdir}/perl/
	# perl configuration items
	perl_conf {
		attribute = value
		another_attr = 1234

I modified rlm_perl to read the subsection "perl_conf" in instantiate, populate a hash, and define a new perl hash passed to the perl code whenever a section is called.
This hash can be manipulated in the same way as the attribute hashes, for instance:


my $value = $RAD_PERLCONF{'attribute'};

If people is interested, I can share the code.
I have no idea how to submit a git patch though, but I can provide the modified file as is.
