Can you clarify this statement? What's the problem in here?

Not sure that this is the case, but is it possible that when you are removing your module cfg80211.ko is unloaded? If this is the case, then you need to restart wpa_supplicant as the nl80211 sockets are closed when cfg80211.ko is unloaded.
