[Qemu-block] [PATCH 0/2] block: curl: Proof of concept for connecting to

This is a proof of concept patch which needs a bunch more testing.
I'm just posting it to get feedback.

It's almost possible to connect qemu to an oVirt / RHV server and
upload or download or otherwise modify disk images.  However the
curl driver is missing a couple of features to satisfy oVirt's
authentication requirements, and these features could be generally
useful for others too.

The patches: Allow arbitrary headers to be sent, so you can add the
oVirt authentication ticket as a special header.  And allow you to
specify a CA bundle, which is required for servers which do client

The particular tricky areas are:

 - I have no idea if I'm doing lists right (first patch), although
   it appears to work.

 - I did not test the QAPI stuff, and I'm not even sure how to go
   about that.

 - There's no documentation, but there's no documentation for many
   other curl driver features either.

 - There are no tests, but similarly no tests for other curl features.
