[PATCH v2] nand-bb: mtd_del_bb: fix missing pointer reset

If an attached bb device was removed before the actual mtd device
the code would try due to a missing pointer reset to access
the no more present bb device handle which leads to a page fault.

This bug was made visible by commit "7649473 mtd: nand: remove
automatically created bb devices" which relys on a correct
mtd->cdev_bb handling.
