Introduce an http client utilizing EDK2 HTTP protocol, to
allow fast image downloading from http/https servers.
HTTP download speed is usually faster than tftp.
The client is based on the same approach as tftp dynamic command, and
uses the same UEFI Shell command line parameters. This makes it easy
integrating http into existing UEFI Shell scripts.
Note that to enable HTTP download, feature Pcd
gEfiNetworkPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAllowHttpConnections must
be set to TRUE.

+" \r\n"
+" -i interface - Specifies an adapter name, i.e., eth0.\r\n"
+" -l port - Specifies the local port number. Default value is 0\r\n"
+" and the port number is automatically assigned.\r\n"
+" -s size The size of the download buffer for a chunk, in bytes.\r\n"
+" Default is 32K. Note that larger buffer does not imply\r\n"
+" better speed.\r\n"
+" -t timeout - The number of seconds to wait for completion of\r\n"
+" requests and responses. Default is 0 which is 'automatic'.\r\n"
+" %HURL%N\r\n"
+" Two types of providing of URLs are supported:\r\n"
+" 1. tftp like, where host and http_uri are separate parameters\r\n"
+" (example: host /host_uri), and\r\n\"
+" 2. wget-like, where host and host_uri is one parameter.\r\n"
+" (example: host/host_uri)\r\n"
+" host - Specifies HTTP Server address.\r\n
+ Can be either IPv4 address or 'http (or https)://addr'\r\n
+ Can use addresses resolvable by DNS as well. \r\n
+ Port can be specified after ':' if needed. \r\n
+ By default port 80 is used.\r\n"
+" http_uri - HTTP server URI to download the file.\r\n"
+" localfilepath - Local destination file path.\r\n"
+" \r\n"
+" 1. The HTTP command allows geting of the file specified by its 'http_uri'\r\n"
+" path from the HTTP server specified by its 'host' IPv4 address. If the\r\n"
+" optional 'localfilepath' parameter is provided, the downloaded file is\r\n"
+" stored locally using the provided file path. If the local file path is\r\n"
+" not specified, the file is stored in the current directory using the file\r\n"
+" server's name.\r\n"
+" 2. Before using the HTTP command, the network interface intended to be\r\n"
+" used to retrieve the file must be configured. This configuration may be\r\n"
+" done by means of the 'ifconfig' command.\r\n"
+" 3. If a network interface is defined with the '-i' option then only this\r\n"

The line ending with " index.html" lacks the "\r\n"
terminator. Because of that, the help text is printed as follows:

current directory:
