Review request for kdelibs.


The attached patch addresses the issue of SSL handshake failure in TcpSlaveBase due to lack of support for disabling SSL compression in Qt. As of 4.8, Qt supports this functionality so this patch implements support for activing that support in KTcpSocket and using it from KIO::TcpSlaveBase so that users will be able to browse SSL protected sites that do not support SSL compression.

Note that this patch also changes the code in TcpSlaveBase not to tear the connection down when SSL handshake fails. Instead it now simply retries the SSL handshake with different SSL parameters. This drastically improves the performance of connecting to sites where the original handshake fails and other SSL modes have be tried, e.g. SSLv3.

This addresses bug 275524.
