When stopping a node from the web UI that was started from the API, distro_series is not cleared

Bug Description

[Test Case]
1. Install MAAS
2. Add a node.
3. Deploy the node
4. When you destroy a node, distro_series will remain with the selected distro_series.

With the fix:
4. When you destroy a node, distro_series will be cleared.

I'm not sure how I got into this state, but one of my nodes that's unallocated has a valid value in its distro_series field. This means that when you start it up from the web UI next time it will now ignore the global default and always use that series because of the logic in Node.get_distro_series().

At the very least, Node.release() should call set_distro_series(series=''). For some odd reason, this is only called from the API release() method rather than the common Node method.

It had been originally started with the API (which sets the passed distro series) but released with the web UI.
