[PATCH] packfile: close multi-pack-index in close_all_packs

Whenever we delete pack-files from the object directory, we need
to also delete the multi-pack-index that may refer to those
objects. Sometimes, this connection is obvious, like during a
repack. Other times, this is less obvious, like when gc calls
a repack command and then does other actions on the objects, like
write a commit-graph file.

The pattern we use to avoid out-of-date in-memory packed_git
structs is to call close_all_packs(). This should also call
close_midx(). Since we already pass an object store to
close_all_packs(), this is a nicely scoped operation.

This fixes a test failure when running t6500-gc.sh with

Thanks for the report, Szeder! I think this is the correct fix,
and more likely to be permanent across all builtins that run
auto-GC. I based it on ds/test-multi-pack-index so it could easily
be added on top.
