Many thanks!

I would like to pass more events, e.g. ASSOC-REJECT, to the action
script. Do you have any concerns about which events are passed?

Currently, the events are passed in two different ways: Pass a
shortened string like "CONNECTED" and "DISCONNECTED" for CTRL_EVENT_*
or pass a full string for all other events.

As ASSOC-REJECT is of type CTRL_EVENT_* too, do you prefer to pass the

    wpa_cli_exec(action_file, ifname, "ASSOC-REJECT");


    wpa_cli_exec(action_file, ifname, CTRL_EVENT_ASSOC_REJECT);

Best regards,
Jörg Krause
