We need to remove the connection from the connection tracker in both of these cases:

s, err := c.NewStream()
if err != nil {
log.Debugf("error opening initial stream for %s: %s", ID, err)
log.Event(context.TODO(), "IdentifyOpenFailed", c.RemotePeer())
// ok give the response to our handler.
if err := msmux.SelectProtoOrFail(ID, s); err != nil {
log.Event(context.TODO(), "IdentifyOpenFailed", c.RemotePeer(), logging.Metadata{"error": err})

That is, from here:

ch := make(chan struct{})
ids.currid[c] = ch

See ipfs/go-ipfs#5412

always remove connection from identify service map
fixes #419

Also call FullClose in a goroutine; no need to block this.

(not happy with that but I'm starting to think we need to rethink stream
closing, again...)
