qemu-nbd: Ignore SIGPIPE

qemu proper has done so for 13 years
(8a7ddc38), qemu-img and qemu-io have
done so for four years (526eda14).
Ignoring this signal is especially important in qemu-nbd because
otherwise a client can easily take down the qemu-nbd server by dropping
the connection when the server wants to send something, for example:

$ qemu-nbd -x foo -f raw -t null-co:// &
[1] 12726
$ qemu-io -c quit nbd://localhost/bar
can't open device nbd://localhost/bar: No export with name 'bar' available
[1]  + 12726 broken pipe  qemu-nbd -x foo -f raw -t null-co://

In this case, the client sends an NBD_OPT_ABORT and closes the
connection (because it is not required to wait for a reply), but the
server replies with an NBD_REP_ACK (because it is required to reply).
