xen-netback: transition to CLOSED when removing a VIF
If a guest is destroyed without transitioning its frontend to CLOSED, the domain becomes a zombie as netback was not grant unmapping the shared rings. When removing a VIF, transition the backend to CLOSED so the VIF is disconnected if necessary (which will unmap the shared rings etc). This fixes a regression introduced by 279f438e36c0a70b23b86d2090aeec50155034a9 (xen-netback: Don't destroy the netdev until the vif is shut down).
