Georg Lippitsch brought CURLOPT_SEEKFUNCTION and CURLOPT_SEEKDATA to …
…allow libcurl to seek in a given input stream. This is particularly important when doing upload resumes when there's already a huge part of the file present remotely. Before, and still if this callback isn't used, libcurl will read and through away the entire file up to the point to where the resuming begins (which of course can be a slow opereration depending on file size, I/O bandwidth and more). This new function will also be preferred to get used instead of the CURLOPT_IOCTLFUNCTION for seeking back in a stream when doing multi-stage HTTP auth with POST/PUT.
