CURLOPT_TCP_FASTOPEN - TCP Fast Open

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TCP_FASTOPEN, long enable);

Pass a long as parameter set to 1L to enable or 0 to disable.

TCP Fast Open (RFC 7413) is a mechanism that allows data to be carried in the SYN and SYN-ACK packets and consumed by the receiving end during the initial connection handshake, saving up to one full round-trip time (RTT).

Beware: the TLS session cache does not work when TCP Fast Open is enabled. TCP Fast Open is also known to be problematic on or across certain networks.

Added in 7.49.0. This option is currently only supported on Linux and macOS 10.11 or later.
