avoid segfaults on parse_object failure

Many call-sites of parse_object assume that they will get a
non-NULL return value; this is not the case if we encounter
an error while parsing the object.

This patch adds a wrapper function around parse_object that
handles dying automatically, and uses it anywhere we
immediately try to access the return value as a non-NULL
pointer (i.e., anywhere that we would currently segfault).

This wrapper may also be useful in other places. The most
obvious one is code like:

  o = parse_object(sha1);
  if (!o)
	  die(...);

However, these should not be mechanically converted to
parse_object_or_die, as the die message is sometimes
customized. Later patches can address these sites on a
case-by-case basis.
