/proc/net/hostap/wlan0 and disassociated MACs?

Great driver, great work! I have a question about the individual station statistics that are provided in /proc/net/hostap/wlan*/ - when is a disassociated station removed from the list? It doesn't appear to occur right at disassociation. I'm using the driver out of CVS as of a few days ago.

Is there a userland trigger for this? It would be very cool to pass this information up to userspace so that you can do something useful with it, like remove the entry from the arp cache or do other processing...

Where in the code is this happening? Perhaps I can do it myself and send you a patch.
