Vendor Specific Attributes are only supported in ODBC mode. A couple
of people have reported problems with VSA in 2.5.12x and they are
testing a correction for it.

You must add the Vendor ID in the RadVendors table (like 9 for
Cisco, etc) and then you can add attributes into the RadAttriutes
table with a RadAttributeID of 26, a RadVendorID matching the entry
you added, and a RadVendorType of the VSA you want to have. The
data portion will allways be the data speicfic to the VSA.
