I've used a python script to control multiple eapol_test processes through
their control interface (i.e., run multiple EAP sessions through each
process and add as many processes as you want to see parallel sessions).
This seemed to work reasonably well and it should be straightforward to
modify the example python script if you want more control on authentication
rate, etc.
