[PATCH 1/2] Make restore_obj() tolerate a preexisting object in the hash

... as long as the pointer is the same as that returned from the restore
function.  Also move the compulsory ref_drop() so that it only gets
done if we created the new object.

The existing object tolerance is important for netdev restore because it
means that I can refer to a peer by its objref instead of needing the
(previously-rejected) veth_peer() function.  If this is not acceptable,
then I'll need to keep a separate list of pairs.
