    json: echo: Speedup seqnum_to_json()

    Derek Dai reports:
    "If there are a lot of command in JSON node, seqnum_to_json() will slow
    down application (eg: firewalld) dramatically since it iterate whole
    command list every time."

    He sent a patch implementing a lookup table, but we can do better: Speed
    this up by introducing a hash table to store the struct json_cmd_assoc
    objects in, taking their netlink sequence number as key.

    Quickly tested restoring a ruleset containing about 19k rules:

    | # time ./before/nft -jeaf large_ruleset.json >/dev/null
    | 4.85user 0.47system 0:05.48elapsed 97%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 69732maxresident)k
    | 0inputs+0outputs (15major+16937minor)pagefaults 0swaps

    | # time ./after/nft -jeaf large_ruleset.json >/dev/null
    | 0.18user 0.44system 0:00.70elapsed 89%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 68484maxresident)k
