PATCH: 1st part of the patch to solve the "large file upload problem"

The following patches are intended to be the beginning step to solving an old 
and  well known issue of uploading large files through KIO::post(...). It 
mainly affects webdav and kio_http. See  bug:34578.

For the benefit of those who have not been following this issue. See for details.

Anyways, what is left to completely fix this problem once this stuff is 
committed ?

- Changes in khtml to make it store the form to be posted in a temporary file 
and pass around this name through the new URLArgs::setPostDataFilename. This 
is easier said than done.  Perhaps one of the khtml developers can help me 
out here ?

- Minor changes in konqueror (konq_view.*) to store the filename instead of a 
shallow copy of the buffer.

- Changes to kio_http, which I have already done and will provide a patch for 
shortly.  It was not included here because I need to break out the rather 
large changes I have for kio_http into smaller chunks...

Comments ? Feedback ?
