I think I will eventually just remove the dhcpcd dependency from the
wpa_supplicant service. Even though the wpa_supplicant daemon is useless
without dhcpcd running, it is capable of running just fine. I'll just
add an install/upgrade message to let users know. That should (probably)
fix your issue unless something else is somehow magically restarting
