Testing mschapv2 with custom radius attributes

radclient does do a better job of sending the attributes as expected,
however I can't figure out how to construct a PEAP-mschapv2 packet to

I think https://wiki.freeradius.org/config/Radclient assumes a more
comprehensive level of understanding than I have.
