relay: Launch dummy circuit only when descriptor build fails

First, this commit moves the launch_dummy_circuit_as_needed() function into
relay_find_addr.c and renames it to relay_addr_learn_from_dirauth(). This is
an attempt to centralize anything relate with address discovery in the right
module.

Second, when building a descriptor and we fail to discover our address,
immediately launch a dummy circuit to an authority in an attempt to learn our
descriptor.

It is still only done every 20 minutes even though the descriptor build is
done every minute. We ought to avoid load on the authority and if we can't
learn in the first place our address from them, chances are more things are
wrong.
