A common pattern e.g. in libavcodec is replacing/updating buffer
references: unref old one, ref new one. This function allows simplifying
such code an avoiding unnecessary refs+unrefs if the references are
already equivalent.

Updated to not touch dst on failure.

Still not using buffer_replace(), since it does not seem to make the
code simpler.
