There can be no value in this locking and test on h_in.

If the lookup could have run in parallel with
class_handle_unhash_nolock() and seen "h_in == 0", then it could
equally well have run moments earlier and not seen it - no locking
would prevent that, so the caller much be prepared to have
an object returned which has already been unhashed by the time it
sees the object.

In other words, an interlock between unhash and lookup much be
provided at a higher level than where this code is trying
to handle it.

So remove this pointless code.
