scsi: target: core: Release SPC-2 reservations when closing a session

The SCSI specs require releasing SPC-2 reservations when a session is
closed. Make sure that the target core does this.

Running the libiscsi tests triggers the KASAN complaint shown below.  This
patch fixes that use-after-free.
