brcmfmac: inform cfg80211 when changing the CONNECTED state

Upon unload of the brcmfmac driver it gave a kernel warning because
cfg80211 still believed to be connected to an AP. The brcmfmac had
already transitioned to disconnected state during unload. This patch
adds informing cfg80211 about this transition. This will get rid of
warning from cfg80211 seen upon module unload:
