EAP-TLS - Authentication succeeds with in-correct "private_key_passwd"

Yes, logoff followed by logon also skips reauth. I tried forcing a
reauth using eapol_sm_request_reauth() in "logon" path. Still it does
not reauth. I am wandering whether it should be considered as a
known-issue in wpa_supplicant or is this behavior acceptable. I
believe wpa_supplicant should reauthenticate if there is a change in
EAP-TLS related config. Should I flush PMKSA caching in logon path as
well? Is there any command-line config option(from wpa_cli) for it?

Please advise.
