[patch] more TLS configuration options for nnrpd

nnrpd's TLS support is basically using OpenSSL's defaults WRT issues
such as protocol support and cipher suites. In these days of POODLEs
and other vulnerabilities, I wanted to be able to have better control
over what's offered there, so I wrote this patch.

What it does is to add a few options to inn.conf:

- tlsprotocols: allows to select the SSL/TLS versions that are

- tlsciphers: allows to give an OpenSSL cipher string to tailor the
  cipher suites that are offered to clients

- tlsprefer_server_ciphers: switches on the server-side selection of
  the cipher suite (TLS default is "client choses")

Additionally, TLS compression is turned off unconditionally (because
of the CRIME attack) if the OpenSSL version supports this.

The patch is against 2.5.4, and I hope it holds up to your coding
