Added ssl context option, "disable_compression"

The CRIME attack vector exploits TLS compression. This patch adds a stream context option
allowing servers to disable TLS compression for versions of OpenSSL >= 1.0.0 (which first
introduced the SSL_OP_NO_COMPRESSION option). A summary rundown of the CRIME attack can
be found at

Thanks to @DaveRandom for pointing out the relevant section of code.
