I added some more details to the CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED event. For
example, with nl80211, you can get following information:

CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED bssid=00:11:22:33:44:55 reason=2

(with WEXT, the correct reason code is not available)

This will hopefully make it somewhat easier to map the disconnection
event to a specific network should there be pending request for joining
another network.
