#452: Support for chunked transfers on client requests

 HTTP/1.1 allows for clients to send chunked requests.

 Varnish does not support this silently drops de content. It should support
 chunked POST requests in order to be RFC compliant.


 All HTTP/1.1 applications that receive entities MUST accept the "chunked"
 transfer-coding (section 3.6), thus allowing this mechanism to be used for
 messages when the message length cannot be determined in advance.
