Switches - Dot1X forwarding

Does anyone have any experience with a Cisco switch just forwarding the EAP-Identity request and Identity response through a switch, without sending it in a new packet toward the radius server.

For example, you have an access switch that's connecting a host that will need to do Dot1X and a Distribution switch that will actually be doing per-user Dot1X authentication on the downlink ports to the access switches. How do you get the access switch to forward the EAP frames towards the client and unplink port without sending it to the processor?
