 I think you're right: the only call here that matters is
 connection_ap_fail_onehop(), which will get called with `failed_digest`
 set to an all-zero identity.  And if that happens, and the digest matches,
 we will still compare on address:port instead, since we check for

 Because of that check in connection_ap_fail_onehop(), I think we should
 just remove the test here.  I'm turning it into an assertion, and renaming
 the variable a bit.
