Hmm, why would stopping the supplicant cause brcmfmac to unload?? Or are
you saying you first stop the supplicant, which gets you that warning,
and then unload fails?

Can't say I understand this warning ...

This seems to be because you don't remove the p2p device if it's still
present when you unload the driver. Call cfg80211_unregister_wdev() at
some appropriate place.
