Modify capability information field in assocication request

I just search everywhere in wpa_supplicant source code to modify the capability information field in association request but I didn’t find anything.

In file driver_nl80211.c there is a function called wpa_driver_nl80211_associate() where a association request is set. Then in function nl80211_connect_common() a new association request frame is built.

But nowhere is set the data for the capability information field.

Can anybody help me to find out which struct and function I have to use to modify capability information field in wpa_supplicant?
