Default add library support for tuning TCP_KEEPALIVE

This adds three new options to control the behavior of TCP keepalives:

- CURLOPT_TCP_KEEPALIVE: enable/disable probes
- CURLOPT_TCP_KEEPIDLE: idle time before sending first probe
- CURLOPT_TCP_KEEPINTVL: delay between successive probes

While not all operating systems support the TCP_KEEPIDLE and
TCP_KEEPINTVL knobs, the library will still allow these options to be
set by clients, silently ignoring the values.

Playing the role of the optimist and labelling this work for 7.24.1. This is
mostly the result of a conversation I had with Daniel regarding usage of
keepalives to thwart control connections to FTP servers being killed off by
firewalls. The code is more or less copied from the front end tool, with all
the bells and whistles added to wire it up for accessibility via
curl_easy_setopt.
