providing generic IE for reassociation request

During association, the supplicant provides the IE for assoc-req (using
SIOCSIWGENIE for example, in WEXT).
In case of re-association under WPA2, this IE needs to be refreshed so the
PMKID for the new BSSID is included.
My questions are - how does the supplicant become aware of bss-transition
and how does it provide the newly generated IE for the new bssid.
