I haven't yet made a separate command for doing this, but the current
development version has functionality for doing this with an ioctl.
wpa_supplicant/driver.c has an example implementation on how to call
this (wpa_driver_disassociate() and wpa_driver_deauthenticate()
functions).

Anyway, changing the driver to do the same thing automatically on those
commands you mention, sounds like a good idea. I'll do this at some
point.
