brcmfmac: inform cfg80211 about disconnect when device is unplugged

When the brcmfmac device is physically removed cfg80211 gives a
warning upon unregistering the net device (see below).

When the device is physically connected the driver sends a disassoc
command to the device and response triggers the driver to inform cfg80211
about it. However, with the device removed the disassoc command fails.
This patch adds a call to cfg80211_disconnected() when that command fails.

The warning was added by commit below and also cleans up, but better
doing it in the driver if only to get rid of the warning.
