[Spatialite] Fix crash on iterator closing if connection failed.

If an iterator fails to open the spatialite database (mHandle == nullptr
in QgsSpatiaLiteFeatureIterator::QgsSpatiaLiteFeatureIterator() ),
a crash will occur at the destruction of the QgsSpatiaLiteFeatureSource,
due to the iterator not being removed from the list of active iterators.

Currently QgsSpatiaLiteFeatureIterator::close() does not call
iteratorClosed() if mHandle is invalid, which later causes
QgsAbstractFeatureSource::~QgsAbstractFeatureSource() to try calling
the close() method of a now defunct iterator.

If not applying the patch, the added test case crashes with:
