driver behavior when beacon changes

What event is a device driver supposed to generate if it detects that an
AP has changed security types? I recently ran across a case in which an
AP's beacon changed from including the RSNA IE to including the WPA IE,
and without sending a de-auth or disassoc to the client. I'm running the
0.5.7 client with the WEXT driver and using ap_scan=1.
