Bad refcounting rules.  *IF* we go with anything of that sort (and I'm not
convinced that the entire series makes sense), it's better to have more
uniform rules re reference consumption/disposal.

Make the destructor of addfd *ALWAYS* drop its reference.  And have this
function go

	if (addfd->fd >= 0) {
		ret = replace_fd(addfd->fd, addfd->file, addfd->flags);
	} else {
		ret = get_unused_fd_flags(addfd->flags);
		if (ret >= 0)
			fd_install(ret, get_file(addfd->file));
	}
