Perhaps for v2.2:

doveadm auth test <user> [<pass>]
doveadm auth cache flush [<user>]
doveadm auth cache stats

and for v2.1 a bit kludgy way:

doveadm auth <user> [<pass>]
doveadm auth cache flush [<user>]

so you couldn't test authentication against "cache" user, but that's probably not a problem.
