Ah.. This is actually addressed by a recent kernel commit
80279fb7ba5b71981a60988b0307afa43f78f6b1 ('cfg80211: properly send
NL80211_ATTR_DISCONNECTED_BY_AP in disconnect'). This adds that
locally_generated parameter to cfg80211_disconnected() and you may want
to pull that commit in into the kernel version used here..
