Review request for kdelibs.


The attached patch is the first portion a set of patches to make uploading data through HTTP more efficient without affecting the existing implementation. Right now the amount of memory consumed when uploading large files through http or webdav is really not acceptable because only a QByteArray based API is available. That means if you want to upload a file of say 50 or 100 MB to a server, then you have to read the entire thing first before you can call KIO::http_post!

This addresses bug 34578.

  kio/kio/job.h 632dfc8 



Used by changing kdewebkit to use the new API.
