[PATCH 1/2] wpa_s: reset wpa_s::normal_scans upon entering DISABLED state

Depending on the implementation the scheduled scan may not give results
quickly when in DISCONNECTED state. This patch resets wpa_s::normal_scans
upon entering to the DISABLED state so a normal scan is assured upon
going to DISCONNECTED state. This mainly solves a long reconnect time
observed upon repeated kernel driver reloads, ie. third reload resulted
in a scheduled scan.
