This patchset introduces 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.


PATCH v7 changes:
Address Laszlo' and Maciej's comments:
- Remove openssl submodule change accidentally added to the v6 patchset;
- Fix code style issues in the code overlooked in the previous patchset.
I'm currently working on some VCPU hotplug fixes for the upcoming
release. Before I return to your HttpDynamicCommand patch, I'll also
have to re-read my earlier comments for it. (In fact I can't tell
off-hand if I had remaining requests for your patch, or not -- hence the
need for re-reading my earlier comments.) It could take some time --
thanks for your patience.
