This avoids a TCP reset (RST) if the server initiates a connection
shutdown by sending an SSL close notify alert and then closes the TCP
For SSL connections, usually the server announces that it will close the
connection with an SSL close notify alert. curl should read this alert.
If curl does not read this alert and just closes the connection, some
operating systems close the TCP connection with an RST flag.
See RFC 1122, section 184.108.40.206
If curl reads the close notify alert, the TCP connection is closed
normally with a FIN flag.
The new code is similar to existing code in the "SSL shutdown" function:
try to read an alert (non-blocking), and ignore any read errors.
