nbd: replace kill_bdev() with __invalidate_device() again

commit 2b5c8f0063e4b263cf2de82029798183cf85c320 upstream.

Commit abbbdf12497d ("replace kill_bdev() with __invalidate_device()")
once did this, but 29eaadc03649 ("nbd: stop using the bdev everywhere")
resurrected kill_bdev() and it has been there since then. So buffer_head
mappings still get killed on a server disconnection, and we can still
hit the BUG_ON on a filesystem on the top of the nbd device.

  EXT4-fs (nbd0): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
  block nbd0: Receive control failed (result -32)
  block nbd0: shutting down sockets

With __invalidate_device(), I no longer hit the BUG_ON with sync or
unmount on the disconnected device.
