Yep, you are correct. When I first tested without -onl80211 in
wpa_supplicant, I didn't have this symptom (i.e. my first message in this
thread) and the wireless driver kept working without being reloaded, but now
that I switched to -onl80211, it seems to be showing a bug in the driver

Thanks for confirming that, and sorry for the false alarm.
