Verify Content-Type from smart HTTP servers

Before parsing a suspected smart-HTTP response verify the returned
Content-Type matches the standard. This protects a client from
attempting to process a payload that smells like a smart-HTTP
server response.

JGit has been doing this check on all responses since the dawn of
time. I mistakenly failed to include it in git-core when smart HTTP
was introduced. At the time I didn't know how to get the Content-Type
from libcurl. I punted, meant to circle back and fix this, and just
plain forgot about it.
