I didn't say this mechanism was already implemented... ;-)

So yes, this is likely to require some work both in wpa_supplicant and
maybe also in kernel to provide the needed events. Authentication events
are already available with mac80211 for infrastructure station role, but
I've not verified whether those can be used with IBSS currently.
