Short of detecting when the link recovers externally and triggering disconnect/reconnect, is there a config option to tell the supplicant to automatically retry?

wpa_supplicant does not track link status with wired interface. I would
have expected the authenticator to trigger reauthentication whenever a
port comes up.. How is this device connected to the devices that
implements IEEE 802.1X?
