Description of problem:
Trying to refresh facts on an existing discovered host creates a new discovered host. The new host has the same information but a name based on mac address.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Discover a host
2. Update the name on the discovered host to something other than mac address based name
3. refresh_facts
4. Refresh discovered hosts page or data.

I was doing this through the api calls to discovered hosts, but was also able to reproduce on the console:

dh = ::Host::Discovered.find(<id>)
dh.name = 'copyme'

Actual results:
A new discovered host with a name based on mac address was found. At this point repeating the process will not create a copy since one already exists.

Expected results:
The facts on the host would be refreshed without creating a new host.

Additional info:
It looked like refresh_facts calling Host::Discovered.import_host would find_by_name and come up empty and create a new host.
