The control interface event is WPA_EVENT_DISCONNECTED and it is sent
with the wpa_msg() call in wpa_supplicant_event_disassoc() (in
wpa_supplicant/events.c). This is called when the driver wrapper
indicates disassociation or deauthentication by calling
wpa_supplicant_event() with EVENT_DISASSOC or EVENT_DEAUTH.
