http2: in Server, disarm connection's ReadTimeout after first request

Fix a regression from Go 1.5 to Go 1.6: when we introduced automatic
HTTP/2 support in Go 1.6, we never handled Server.ReadTimeout. If a
user set ReadTimeout, the net/http package would set the read deadline
on the connection during the TLS handshake, but then the http2 package
would never disarm it, killing the likely-still-in-use connection
after the timeout period.

This CL changes it to disarm the timeout after the first request
headers, similar to net/http.Server.

Unlike net/http.Server, we don't re-arm it on each idle period,
because the definition of idle is more complicated with HTTP/2.

No tests here for now. Tests will be in the go repo once all the knobs
are in place and this is re-bundled into std, testing both http1 and

Updates golang/go#16450 (minimal fix for now)
Updates golang/go#14204 (considering a new http1+http2 IdleTimeout knob)
