Requesting the EAP-Identity this way requires an additional module,
--enable-eap-identity while doing ./configure. 

Another option is to let the RADIUS server do the EAP-Identity exchange.
This can be done by sending an EAP-Start to RADIUS, but not all servers
like it. Have a look at [1] for details.
